Chris, would you be so kind? I tried to work from Donald's gist, but there
are some funny characters in it.

I'd also like to use the Open Publication License (see PEP 1) rather than
placing it in the public domain.

You can go straight to the peps repo, I can fix things up later once I have
time to review it.

Thank you so much!!
