To me, three experienced core devs approving of a 4th person as 
PEP-examiner is sufficient to proceed on a CPython implementation 
proposal.  I don't think we need to be paralyzed on this.  And indeed, 
when it comes to sub-PEP C-API changes, we seem not to be.  This change, 
if made, should be early in the cycle for the next version, rather than 
landing just before the first beta.

A language syntax-change proposal would be something else.
