I certainly don't mind at the very least, people modifying PEP 0 when
the status of their own peps change.

I do like to make a sanity pass through the text before approving it,
just to make sure we've got consistent format throughout the peps.
Also, I know we're all on "internet time" here <wink>, but one day
isn't too much time to let pass before taking action on things. :)
I'd also prefer it if there's /some/ limited editorial review before
these things get added.

That having been said, I'm very happy if someone wants to co-edit the
peps.  The pep 0 re-organization and slacker scolding would definitely
benefit from more than one watchdog.

Volunteers? :)
