In time, yes.  For now we're just trying to get it started.  Note that we
can't currently change anything on python.org, and I'm not sure we're yet
able to get at pythonlabs.com most days either <0.9 wink>.

Plus me <wink>!

Barry didn't say so, but he could have:  the things for which he created
PEPs are, as far as Guido is concerned, all going to be in the 2.0 release
(yup!  augmented assignments and list comprehensions and ... that other
thing <wink>).  So we have a crucial need to make sense out of their
respective Python-Dev messes *now* (as the "list comprehension guy", who was
out of the loop yesterday for moving, out most of today for a mtg, and will
be out tomorrow again for personal reasons, I despair of ever making
coherent sense out of the 100+ msgs I haven't got to on the topic yet,
inexplicably splintered along multiple Subject lines).  So, like with the
move to the SF patch manager, we're just moving to *something* we aren't yet
certain is totally broken.  It will work if all of us do <wink>.
