Excellent!  If that's true, it really has reached the stage
where it's ready for the BDFL's pronouncement.  Having the
slaves do all the hard work and having the BDFL only have
to weigh the subjective and aesthetic issues is probably
exactly how the process should work, and should still
result in a Python that is a consistent and coherent whole. **
