My mistake, the try block should have just covered the import of partial - that is after all the exceptional circumstance we can deal with by using the pure python implementation. Possibly reduce could be handled in a similar way with a fallback python implementation? Otherwise your suggestion of conditionally adding it to __all__ makes sense to me. > * Should the pure Python partial only be used if _functools.partial is not > available? > * Should _functools.partial be removed? What are the main considerations to properly answer these last questions? Performance comparison between the implementations, maintainability? ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue12428> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
