I propose that when someone thinks there is a problem serious enough to warrant a Code-of-Conduct action, that it get referred to a group of three people to make the decision.
This reminds me of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NKVD_troika.
Well, they both have in common the number "three" :-)
There are however a couple of minor differences:
One was tasked with "screening the peasant population of the entire Soviet Union" for the express purpose of "the liquidation of the kulaks as a class".
The other is tasked with handling rare one-off situations where the stated goals are considering the needs of the community, being respectful as possible to all parties, and doing what they can to mitigate the harm to the violator. The express intent is to protect the vibrancy of the Python community rather than acting with an intent to punish, humiliate, or discredit the affected person.
Other than than those minor differences, it is basically the same thing ;-)
