   The PEP process is straightforward. However, a PEP may produce an
outcome that proves after more experience to be wrong. ISTM a
prerequisite to choosing a DVCS is that it should support the full
range of development platforms and thus the PEP was accepted
prematurely. At some point the PEP should be reexamined and, if
necessary, rescinded. What I don't understand is why the plan is still
to move to hg despite, after several months, there not being a known
good way to include Windows eol support.
