The PEP is now fully ready: I just finished the implementation.

It looks like people, who complained on older versions of the PEP,
don't have new complain. Am I wrong? Everybody agree with the PEP 418?

I created http://hg.python.org/features/pep418/ repository for the
implementation. I tested it on Linux 3.3, FreeBSD 8.2, OpenBSD 5.0 and
Windows Seven. The implementation is now waiting your review!

There is also the toy implementation in pure Python for Python < 3.3:

Antoine asked "Is there a designated dictator for this PEP?". Nobody
answered. Maybe Guido van Rossum?
