Nit: replace "seems to be" with "is".  There's no seeming about it.

By the way, since you didn't know about PEPs, you should look at
http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0001.html (PEP Guidelines) wherein
you'll find this statement: 
  "Once the authors have completed a PEP, they must inform the PEP 
   editor that it is ready for review.  PEPs are reviewed by the BDFL
   and his chosen consultants, who may accept or reject a PEP or send
   it back to the author(s) for revision."

Note also the status of PEP 275: "draft", which means not yet ready
for review...
