The PEP list has an additional heading called "Accepted"; currently only
252 and 253 are in that category. I would've thought that the ones like
237 and 283 that are not "Done" but are definitely "accepted" would go
under that "Accepted" heading.
It's not a big deal, but it's very hard to see from the list which things
are "in progress", "need revisions", or are "unlikely to make it". So
since I already took the trouble to work out the answers for myself, I
thought I'd offer to help the next person who came along. :)
