I wouldn't wait for the PEP number.  The PEP editors, just like anyone
else, can get busy.  Go ahead and keep working on stuff.  If you write
a PEP, just fill the number with XXXs and say it is a draft or
proto-PEP when you post it somewhere.  Lots of people have written
entire PEPs before getting a number so it is not unexpected.

As Guido said, get something on python-dev for people to discuss, even
if it is as simple as the syntactic proposal part.
