[Python-Dev] PEP 450 adding statistics module

Steven, I'd like to just approve the PEP, given the amount of
discussion that's happened already (though I didn't follow much of
it). I quickly glanced through the PEP and didn't find anything I'd
personally object to, but then I found your section of open issues,
and I realized that you don't actually specify the proposed API in the
PEP itself. It's highly unusual to approve a PEP that doesn't contain
a specification. What did I miss?
