Georg kindly published the PEP I submitted last night to the PEP site:
This PEP includes some of the previous discussion on the processing module's inclusion, and I hope clears up/clarifies some of the goals/non goals and issues. I also included benchmark data and a link to the code used for said benchmarks.
I would like to renew the discussion now that "there is a PEP" to see if there are any outstanding things people would like to get resolved. I chose to continue to push it for 2.6 / 3.0 inclusion due to feedback both here and elsewhere that people would rather see this in sooner in some form, rather than later (i.e.: 2.7/3.1).
