Shouldn't we allow other people to tweak PEP 0? It would certainly lighten
Barry's administrative overload.

I mean, geez... this is what source control is about. Let a lot of people in
there, but be able to back up in case somebody totally goofs it.

This goes for adding new PEPs, too. I'm not as convinced here, since some
level of "good enough for a PEP" filtering is probably desirable, but then
again, it would seem that the people with commit access probably have that
filter in their head anyways.

Just a thought... how can we grease things up a bit more...
