Not quite: because it was not rejected, someone who wants to shepherd the
process forward would likely be welcomed (even if it ends up with formal
rejection).  I suggest starting by writing your own summary of the
previous discussion and see if the people involved agree that your
summary is reasonably accurate.  Also check to see if the original PEP
writer wants to be involved or whether zie is willing to have you take
over.

Another good (and related) starting point would be to create a reasoning
favoring one side or the other that was not brought up in previous
discussion.
