I volunteered simply because my name is currently on the PEP as one of its
authors. One of the loudest cries on c.l.py came from someone (Edward Ream
I think) complaining that the PEP as it currently stands doesn't really
describe the changes that were just checked in. I can't really fault him
for it. Had I (or associated with the PEP in the past) been alerted, I
think that particular complaint could have been avoided.
I do have Anthony's latest updates and will try to factor them into the PEP
this evening. If others have editing suggestions, getting them to me
earlier is better than later.
