I would _love_ to find someone to take over PEP ownership of these.  I
feel terrible that I haven't been able to find the time to do those right
(although I only feel moral ownership of 207, not 208, where others have
much more in-depth knowledge).

If someone wants to take over, please speak up and grab them.  I'll try to
find the time to share the information I have, would gladly give the very
early and now obsolete patches I wrote up.
