Sorry if I'm a bit quick to respond here (haven't read the PEP yet; I
seem to have lost the URL) but ... is this related to the following
issue (which I struggled with for a while back in 2002)?

IMO, special-casing (if that's what you're proposing) is a Bad
Think(tm), as general code will then have to add special-casing to
avoid tripping over it... (But I may just be confused here :)
