I don't think that the original rationale for posting the full text of a
PEP to a mailing list still applies. The raw text is on GitHub in the
python/peps repo, and the formatted text is on python.org. We're not some
kind of bureaucratic org that pretends to still live in the world of paper
and pencil.

IMO if you can't be bothered to click through on GitHub you forfeit your
right to comment. (Which isn't a right anyway, it's a privilege.)
