He's also a (the?) driving force behind PyPI. Anyway, it turns out he
has withdrawn that PEP:
I don't agree with his arguments for withdrawing it _at_ _all_. I think
it's _exactly_ what Python needs: we need a solution that works across
Python installations across platforms. Maybe we should just grab that
PEP and reanimate it.
