Thank you, that was not quite the asnwer I hoped.
I have many own extensions to, but I appreciate your effort, and I wll try to write a list with the standard features.
Yes, this is the only reason I have Python 2.

Hi Binaris,

I remember there was an issue but I am not able to investigate into this matter. The compat branch is very outdated and does only support Python 2. My Python developing version is 3.9, the production system runs with 3.7 and for some reason I have also 3.5 installed which is the default environment on tools.

The only way I can support you is to re-implement the missing functionality. Where is the lag in core? What are you missing?
