I knew it wasn't April 1 when I saw the idea, but I tried to think about if there might be some other joke I was missing. Maybe something with the word "pap" that a few people have posted various definitions of.
FWIW, I'm one of those authors who has printed works that includes discussion of various PEPs, using that acronym. Also to various RFCs, likewise. And always to ISO 8601, of course :-). I like those acronyms.

Thank you for your thoughts but i guess this mail does not add anything new to the thread nor does it explain what it intends to convey. Kind regards, Abdur-Rahmaan Janhangeer
Actually, it conveys in a very plain manner that David Mertz does not think your idea is a good one. Please stop being so dismissive of others' comments. It does not endear you to them.
