Yes, sorry if that wasn't communicated better. This was in no way a
knee-jerk decision. Beyond all of us following this topic personally since
it was first brought up last year, we have also been discussing it nearly
every meeting in some form or another since we began discussing PEPs (which
would be probably since February).

I've added to our next meeting's agenda discussing potentially fleshing out
PEP 581 a bit more.
