I don't understand what you mean: to help with what? Designing the PEP? 
Discussing the PEP? Accepting the PEP? Lobbying Python core devs?

The Cython developers (in particular Stefan Behnel) certainly support my 
work. I have talked with them in person at a workshop and they posted a 
few emails to python-dev and they also gave me some personal comments 
about PEP 580.

As for NumPy, one obvious place where some ideas of PEP 579 could be 
applied is ufuncs. However, typically ufuncs are not *called* in tight 
loops, they implement tight loops internally. So I don't think that 
there is pressing need for anything like PEP 580 in NumPy.
