No. The PEP is only about Subversion. Why should we be looking at Per Force? Only because Python is Open Source?
Perforce offers free licensing to open source projects.
Ok, so I now got "it's mature", and "it would be without charges". Given that it is now running against Subversion, I would be still interested in advantages that it offers compared to svn.
The biggest disadvantage, to me, is that few people know how to use it (myself included). I don't trust tools I've never used.
So for me, as the author of this PEP, usage of the revsion control software is non-negotiable (selection of hoster, to a limited degree, is). If you want to see Perforce used for the Python development, you should write a counter-PEP, so we could let the BDFL decide. [This is a theoretical "you" here, since you then explain that you would still prefer to use subversion]
