Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I'm not really convinced this is needed. While we may add some of
the things in the cited e-mail, it's unlikely we'd add many of them as
immutable construction-time-only features rather than just as attributes that
can be changed arbitrarily.

If we ever need to, we can always make the API wait until the event loop spins
before doing anything, in which case we can expose any optional
construction-time argument we want as object attributes, without having an
open() method.
