I retract this statement; the PEP actually explicitly acknowledges this
alternative and insists that it be included in any vote.  (I was
probably mixing the non-short-circuiting form -- which _is_ explicitly
rejected by the PEP -- with this one in my mind.)

Sorry about any confusion I might have caused with that misstatement.
