Confirming, +1 from me. Barry, Nick? You two are the most active

+1 for text/x-rst being the preferred. We'd need some time to make it the
default, but I'm generally in favor of that happening.
The major issue is making knowledge of rst and sphinx a requirement for
submitting a PEP. I suggest making sure that PEP 1 exemplifies the
preferred usage of rst in PEPs and then suggesting using it as model.
A related issue is plain text for posting. Initial pre-drafts can be
posted to python-ideas before being marked up. Other than copying the
browser display of the .html conversion (which requires a bit of cleanup
after pasting), what is the easiest way to get post-markup plain text?
