Yep, it was just a misunderstanding on my part as to possible failure
modes for the PEP publication process. I've certainly seen plenty of
other systems which need to be resent events if processing of the
original events fails. Primarily, I didn't know that any PEP commit
just triggered a full Makefile invocation for the PEP directory rather
than trying to be selective. (Letting make sort it out is a better
idea, I just didn't know it was set up that way).

(And, like Terry, Firefox chokes on the postcommit log for me. The
file appears to be too big for my system to handle gracefully,  so
checking it really didn't help me. I did try though.)
