No, but it does say that / may be reintroduced 'if the BFDL so desires'. I 
hope that doesn't mean the BDFL may be overruled. :^)

I'm not convinced by the rationale given why atime,ctime,mtime and size are 
methods rather than properties but I do find this PEP much more agreeable 
than the last time I looked at it.
