I wasn't going to be at PyCon, but I changed my plans specifically to
participate in this. Thanks for setting this up.

Cool.  A major difficulty in these sorts of discussions is that people
have different problems they want to solve and argue about solutions
without clearly stating their problems.

If you don't mind, I'll try to find some time in the next few days to
add a section
to that page to list goals/problems.

It might also be a good idea to link to or assemble a list of PEPs
that people are encouraged to review ahead of time as homework.
