> I agree that we’ll effectively have language moratorium until we have a new governance structure.  But let me ask, what do you propose to do about PEP 572?  That’s already been accepted, but not yet implemented.  Would it be exempt from the moratorium or scoot in under the wire?

Since it's accepted, the implementation is just a matter of code review
and doesn't require (AFAICT) the intervention of an ultimate authority.
As much as I dislike PEP 572...
