The PEP is not out of date! It is, however, still in draft status.
Let me just paint a rough time framework: I hope PAL will be released as 
an add-on near the 2.0final release, and shortly after that, if there will
not be gaping problems, the Sumo interpreter (i.e., Python core+PAL) 
will be released. Also, please realize this is a UNIX-centric PEP right
now. If someone with a good windows background wants to work on a windows
version, please contact me.
