The over use of globals is never to be encouraged, which is precisely 
what this would do.  You could try raising this on python-ideas but I 
suspect you'd be wasting your time, so writing a PEP would almost 
certainly be a waste of time.  Still, if you've got free time go ahead, 
I won't stop you.
