Typo in the PEP number: PEP 406, which was an ultimately failed
attempt to get away from the reliance on process globals to manage the
import system by encapsulating the top level state as an "Import
Engine": https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0406/

We still like the idea in principle (hence the Withdrawn status rather
then being Rejected), but someone needs to find time to take a run at
designing a new version of it atop the cleaner PEP 451 import plugin
API (hence why the *specific* proposal in PEP 406 has been withdrawn).
