[Python-ideas] PEP8 operator must come before line break

Thanks, that was obviously an oversight. I've fixed the PEP.

If the discussion ends up with rough consensus on changing this I will
happily change it back (and change all other occurrences to match the
new rule).

Note that my request for "rough consensus" does *not* imply a vote. +1
and -1 votes (nor fractions in between) should not be posted --
however cogent arguments for/against the status quo (or for
relinquishing the rule altogether) are welcome.
