Update of /cvsroot/python/python/nondist/peps
In directory slayer.i.sourceforge.net:/tmp/cvs-serv6200

Modified Files:
	pep-0204.txt 
Log Message:

Update this PEP to current, harsh, reality. It's been rejected :) If at all
possible, the reasoning should be extended to include the real reasons it
was rejected -- this is just guesswork from my side. (This means you, Guido,
or anyone who can channel Guido enough to call himself Guido.)

! Rejection
! 
!     After careful consideration, and a period of meditation, this
!     proposal has been rejected. The open issues, as well as some
!     confusion between ranges and slice syntax, raised enough questions
!     for Guido not to accept it for Python 2.0, and later to reject the
!     proposal altogether. The new syntax and its intentions were deemed
!     not obvious enough.
! 
!     [ TBD: Guido, ammend/confirm this, please. Preferably both; this
!       is a PEP, it should contain *all* the reasons for rejection
!       and/or reconsideration, for future reference. ]
