you know, Dave, I'm actually pretty tired of your snide remarks. Your
passive aggressive emails, your inability to remember when or be
honest about why you unsubbed me from the netaddr list, etc. are not
the actions of someone seeking serious debate about the best possible
library for python.

To answer your 'where' question,
http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0001/ is pretty clear on where peps
should be submitted:  specifically, "We try to build consensus around
a PEP, but if that's not possible, you can always submit a competing

I'm not personally looking forward waiting around for more of your
free time to become available before you can get to updating your wiki
(which, btw, seems to be both out of date and otherwise incorrect wrt

netaddr).  Hopefully the code you've written is currently in a more
complete state than the wiki and can be judged as it is.
