I am the PEP 3143 author and champion. It hasn't been presented for a
resolution yet.

Development of the reference implementation is complete but not yet
suitable for standard library inclusion; progress in that direction has
stalled due to intermittent communication between the developers.

Further questions specifically about the PEP content or its
implementation to me directly, if you like. Or in ‘comp.lang.python’, if
you prefer.

So it's not abandoned, but I don't know which version should be the
current target. What change should I make to the PEP in such a case?
