Some of those (e.g. 237) have multiple stages and ought to remain open
until the last stage is implemented.  283 ought to remain open until
Python 2.3 final is released.  Some others need to be brought in line
with what ended up being implemented.  Authors with commit privileges
can update their own PEPs; others can send patches or new versions to
the PEP editors.

Correct -- this *issue* is still open, but the solution from the PEP
is rejected.

I think it's appropriate for April Fool's PEPs to be in limbo forever.
