I'd argue the point, but I guess until you try it, we'll never know. <wink>

Apparently it served its purpose quite well.  The main problem before
the PEP and vote was that there was no PEP to point to when somebody
asked about it, so you could say "asked and answered... will not happen".

Now there is, and the few times the issue has come up since, someone
has fairly quickly pointed to the PEP each time, avoiding lengthier
discussion.
