Adding some use cases to the rationale might help convince the Python 
developers that this change is worth the development and maintenance 
burden.  What about Python database adapters or data acquisition software?

As the developers are very concerned with keeping their maintenance load 
manageable, a reference implementation would be persuasive, and they may 
want a commitment to help update affected standard library modules.
