With the exception of the bytes change, I ruled out accepting any 
proposed amendments that would actually alter the protocol.  The 
amendments are all either textual clarifications, clarifications of 
ambiguous/unspecified areas, or best-practice recommendations by 
implementors.  (i.e., which are generally already implemented in major servers)

The full list of things Graham and others have asked for or 
recommended would indeed require a 1.1 version at minimum, and thus a 
new PEP.  But I really don't want to start down that road right now, 
and therefore hope that I can talk Graham or some other poor soul 
into shepherding a 1.1 PEP instead.  ;-)

(Seriously: through an ironic twist of fate, I have done nearly 
*zero* Python web programming since around the time I drafted the 
first spec in 2004, so even if it makes sense for me to finish PEP 
333, it makes little sense for me to be starting a *new* one on the topic now!)
