Well, just in case you didn't notice this on python-ideas, I offered
to work on the PEP in case there turns out to be one. This was when
Guido had asked if there is going to be a PEP, in response to my "Type

still valid.

Yes, going from endless discussion to PEP seems like a very healthy
direction at this point.
