Either my google-fu is failing or your memory failed you. I've spent an 
hour and a half googling, and I'm getting nothing relevant. It doesn't 
help that Alex was a very prolific poster back in the day.

Hell, I can't even find where PEP 263 was discussed, apart from a 
brief discussion here:


which Alex didn't take part in. (And that was a year after the PEP was 
first created.)
