Thanks! I'd accept this (and I'd reject 504 at the same time). I like the
secrets name. I wonder though, should the PEP propose a specific set of
functions? (With the understanding that we might add more later.) Hopefully
someone on the peps team can commit your PEP in the repo. It's probably
going to be PEP 506.
