Nice work, Eric.  PEP 420 is quite clear.  I appreciate that not many
words are spent on contrasting it with PEP 402.  I agree that the PEP
needs to be clear on Nick's concerns, one way or the other (especially
as they relate to PEP 395).  I don't recall any satisfactory
resolution on that.  Looking forward to hearing more on this.


p.s.  how often do the PEPs get rebuilt?  I saw the PEP as it came
across the commits list, but it's not showing up on the site.
