- and add it to our own personal builds of Python, thus bypassing the
entire issue of getting it accepted into Python. Of course, this does
mean that your brilliant code only works on your particular build of
Python, but I'd say that this is the first step - before writing up
the PEP, run it yourself and see whether you even like the way it

THEN, once you've convinced yourself, start convincing others (ie PEP).
