Actually, that's not QUITE true.

I submitted a proposed PEP not long ago, and got a lot of comments. 
Unfortunately, I didn't see any consensus begin to emerge, at least not 
one that I could recognize. So I decided I should put it away for a 
month or so, then come back with a fresh mind to create the version I 
actually submitted. It's my theory (untested, of course) that this will 
result in a better initial PEP and thus a better chance of acceptance.

Anyhow, it's almost been that month now, so I ought to get myself 
together and get back to this. As before, if anyone else feels strongly 
that they'd like to contribute (other than the excellent comments 
several folks already made), they should email me.
