[Python-Dev] Refactor __get_builtin_constructor on hasklib.py


Hi there,

Good to see you on python-dev. It's always good to see people getting
excited about helping with Python's development.

The changes you suggest are, unless I've missed something, purely cosmetic
- affecting readability only. This implies that you feel the code as it
stands isn't as readable as it could be. You must admit that "it looks
messy" is a matter of opinion, and alone isn't much of a justification for
making changes to a project that will reach its end of life in less than
eighteen months.

The code in the standard library is mostly fairly well-scrutinised, and as
PEP 8 reminds us, change made for purely stylistic reasons threatens to
introduce new bugs.

It's not obvious how much of the developer documentation you've seen, so it
might be worth mentioning https://devguide.python.org/ as a good starting
point for anyone wanting to contribute.

regards
 Steve
