Argh.  You know that I meant "after 1.6".  Here's my current timeline
(I'll post this on the web when we have access):

- 1.6beta1 out around August 1
- 1.6final around August 15
- 2.0beta1 around August 30
- various betas
- 2.0final around September 30

Obviously not every PEP will be included in 2.0.  I plan on including
these: zip(); list comprehensions; augmented assignments; range
literals.  Also whatever's in pep-0200.
