The PEP 3003 text isn't allowing for the fact that 3.1 is "3.0 as it
should have been", so the starting point for the 18-24 month rule of
thumb is actually back when 3.0 was released in Dec 2008. This was
discussed a fair bit back when the decision was made to do the short
release cycle between 3.0 and 3.1 in order to address some of the more
glaring shortcomings of the 3.0 release.

Cheers,
Nick.
