To be clear: I agree with Valery that there's a need. I've needed this before;
we use private implementation techniques all the time, with severe hacks to
reduce the number of memory allocations.

I'm not arguing to put a roadblock in the request.

I'm saying that the discussion on the mailing list will not lead to a fruitful
result. Someone needs to take the next step and write a very good paper. And
as any paper that addresses core language changes, it needs to provide
sufficient evidence for why this is a good idea, why the status quo needs to
change (like explaining what hoops developers need to go through), go through
the possible concerns the committee may have, explaining how they're
addressed, and in addition to the recommended syntax, provide alternatives
that were discarded.

I think the CWG has an incubator team that can help you write and improve on
the paper.
