That sounds good to me. But please keep in mind that I don't speak for 
the project, so if it works well, we would still need to achieve 
consensus within
the project that this is something useful.

If you find some bugs with the annotations and mypy, that would probably 
prove its value to some degree [and if you don't, I might be inclined to 
argue it's not working well ;]

Joel, Olivier, Gael, anyone else?: opinions?
