That's a rather philosophical question. I clearly said "I will" not "I
might". And if you're asking whether it's likely that I'll change my mind,
no. I would like help with updates to the PEP to summarize some of the
discussions and rejected proposals. And I am giving myself a week to "cool
off". But I am muting threads that bring up objections that I've heard
before (e.g. "design principles"). So those articles aren't wrong. Your
patience is appreciated.
