Looks like Benjamin just changed Replaced-By with Superseded-By in PEP 1 and
Replaced with Superseded as a Status.  He also updated a bunch of PEPs with
the new headers, including 333.

He probably should have discussed this with the other PEP editors beforehand,
but in retrospect, it seems fine.

I guess that means you're requesting a new header such as 'Related' which
would contain a list of PEP numbers?  Usually we just put those in the
references (and it's perfectly fine to update a PEP after it's final with new
references - that's why we have a version control system. :)
