Fate of the repr module in Py3.0

P: n/a
Was looking at PEP 3108, http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-3108/ ,
and saw that the repr module was slated for vaporization. I've only
used the module a few times ever. I'm curious if the community wants
it kept around or whether it is considered clutter.

The PEP is going to be finalized soon, so if you have issues with it,
they should be sent to the PEP author or brought up on the list,

I've never used it, the value isn't obvious.
>>import repr
repr.__doc__
'Redo the builtin repr()
(representation) but with limits on most
sizes.'
