Today's thunderstorms knocked out my home network so I'm just now
catching up on email.

Great PEP Neal, thanks for doing it!

One nit: PEP file numbers must have 4 digits, so I cvs rm'd
pep-291.txt, copied it to pep-0291.txt and cvs added the latter.  I
also sync'd it to www.python.org.

Please make any future updates to the pep-0291.txt file.
