PEP 329: Treating Builtins as Constants in the Standard Library

P: n/a
Comments are invited on a new pep:

http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0329.html

Based on feedback received so far, there were several changes to the
original draft:

* The module is public

* The module name reflects its nature as a bytecode hack

* There is a flag to disable binding

* Added summaries of how it works, when it is called, and the effect on
startup time (near zero).

* Included a reference to Jython FAQs supporting the means for
automatically doing nothing in environments without bytecodes.
