Hum, this isn't fully new, some PEPs already got a "PEP champion" (old
name), no?

A recent example is PEP 572 who has been "championed" by Guido van
Rossum, then by Tim Peters. In this specific case, they became
co-authors :-)

Nitpick: since Python has no more BDFL, maybe the expression should
becocme "PEP-delegate"? ;-)

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.
