Why write a PEP at this stage? Just release your proposal as a module,
and see if people use it. If they do, write a PEP to include it in the
stdlib. (That's basically what happened with the original PEP - it
started off proposing Jason Orendorff's path module IIRC).

:-) (But I'm not sure I'd vote for it in to go the stdlib without
having survived as an external module first)
