Regarding PEPs 576 and 580. Over the new year, I did a thorough analysis of possible approaches to possible calling conventions for use in the CPython ecosystems and came up with a new PEP. The draft can be found here: https://github.com/markshannon/peps/blob/new-calling-convention/pep-9999.rst
Thanks for that. Is this new PEP meant to supersede PEP 576?
I'd like to have a testable branch, before formally submitting the PEP, but I'd thought you should be aware of the PEP.
If you want to bring up this PEP now during the PEP 576/580 discussion, maybe it's best to formally submit it now? Having an official PEP number might simplify the discussion. If it turns out to be a bad idea after all, you can still withdraw it.
In the mean time, I remind you that PEP 576 also doesn't have a complete reference implementation (the PEP links to a "reference implementation" but it doesn't correspond to the text of the PEP).
