Yes, Yes, YES!

The goal of whatever it is we're doing here should be to come up with
a PEP, and a Wiki seems to be a good way to iteratively approach
writing a PEP.  (As long as eventually it's moved into the PEP.)

I also believe that without an outspoken author who heads the effort,
there's no hope.  Paul, please either lead the way or say you ain't
"it".  We've had enough meta discussion.  I know *I* ain't gonna be
"it" -- I just don't have the time.
