Terry J. Reedy added the comment:

"Where there's conflict, Guido's style rules for the purposes of this PEP." I think this sentence should go. The only way that I can make sense of it is that Guido's and Barry's documents have rules that are not in PEP 8 and that if they conflict, Guido's wins. (Sort of incorporation by reference.) But if Guido's does not exist, then that also makes sense. In any case, PEP8 should say everything we want it to say without reference to other docs.

"This PEP may still be incomplete (in fact, it may never be finished
 <wink>)" This should either be deleted or modified. "This PEP is subject to modification." or "This PEP will always be subject to modification." is sufficient.
