The PEP is right here:


I'm interested in hearing specific complaints about the API in the
context of what it's trying to *do*. The only thing which jumped out
at me was the number of methods on FutureList; but then again, each
one of those makes conceptual sense, even if they are verbose -
they're explicit on what's being done.
