Thanks Thomas for accepting my PEP :-)

Thanks everyone who was involved in discussions since it started July
2018! For the first version of my PEP 587, I tried to design an API as
small as possible, but it was clear that it didn't fit all use cases.
Slowly, I extended and adjusted the API to fix all use cases. The
feedback was *very* useful!

A special thank to Nick Coghlan, Steve Dower and Gregory Szorc!!!

I'm now implementing the PEP ;-) I wrote 1000 lines of documentation
(in Doc/c-api/init_config.rst, well it's mostly code copied from the
PEP)! I will merge it before 3.8beta1.

> As PEP-delegate, I'm accepting version 5 of PEP 587 (Python Initialization Configuration). I don't think Victor has posted the latest version, but it contains a couple of minor renames, and a new private API to allow us to experiment with two-phase initialisation of Python.
> There's still time to debate exact names and work on the wording of the PEP, but I'm satisfied the design is solid, a clear improvement over what we currently have, and a step in the right direction for some of the more extensive changes that have been proposed (e.g. using Python *code* for the Python configuration. If we do get to that point, the PEP contains a few things that are superfluous, but I'd consider them minor transitionary warts at that point -- if we ever get there).
> Thanks, Victor, for pushing this massive amount of work through; it won't affect most people using Python (at least until the rest of PEP 432 lands) but it's a giant boon to those of us who embed Python :)

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