It is a bad idea because features have to be supported in the long-term, which means more maintenance effort. So, basically, this is the same reason we don't accept every feature request + patch that gets posted to the tracker. And, again, I think the string interning part is a good thing. ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue16475> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
