Works for me, too. I don't think the PEP has to be particularly 
*complicated* - it just needs to nail down specific semantics so 
everyone is talking about the same thing.

And it should point out that this has nothing to do with changing the 
idiom for making modules that also work as scripts. If people want to do 
that, they can write their own PEP ;)

I'll see if I can come up with a first draft this weekend.
