no need for mystery here -- I asked off-list for feedback from Steven and a
couple others, then posted the PEP without having given them much time to

However, I posted the PEP because I wanted review, and we had had enough
circular conversations that I thought is was time for a concrete proposal
to bash on. I by no means intended to convey the impression that there was
consensus reached among anyone in particular.

The goal of posting the PEP was to determine if that was so, and if not, to
change it to a point where that could happen.
