Following up to a posted PEP and adding interspersed comments is much
easier if the full text of the PEP is posted; any mail or news reader
probably has a single keystore for it.  If the only thing posted is
the URL, then it requires more steps to do that by hand-- pull up the
PEP in your Web browser, get an ASCII version (what the poor benighted
souls who use Netscape do to get plain text, I don't know), insert '>'
at the start of every line, annotate it, etc.  IMHO the full text of
every PEP should have been posted at least once in the PEP's lifetime.
