The easiest access to this discussion for me was
http://news.gmane.org/group/gmane.comp.python.devel/
I cannot add to this discussion, but I REALLY hope others 
will help Travis out here.  (A few have.)  He is fielding a lot 
of questions, some of which look to me to be from 
individuals who are ready to have fairly strong opinions 
without really understanding the "why" of his proposals.

The good news is, there seems to be (on my naive reading) 
some sympathy for what Travis is trying to do.  I think more 
motivating examples would prove helpful in swinging things.

Cheers,
Alan Isaac
