Martin's point is that the PEP process doesn't *have* "reference" implementations. It has *sample* implementations. It may be useful to refer to a sample implementation as an example..
Fair enough. But otoh, asking for sample implementations on this type of project can skew the PEP towards a particular implementation or product.
Nobody is "asking" for sample implementations. Instead, I'm asking that what Tarek calls a "reference implementation" should be called a "sample implementation" instead. I'm asking for that precisely to avoid a skew towards a particular implementation.
I'll remove it and push it in Distutils documentation, then might just provide a link in the PEP References.
