Nice work, stpete.

Some questions/comments:

- wouldn't it be useful to be able to identify what proposal type
  a JEP is, by looking at its number? How about a prefix such as
  'S', 'J' or 'I' for 'Standards Track', 'JIG' or 'Informational'
  respectively.

- as far as I can make out from (pedantically) reading 0001, here
  are the possible statuses per JEP type:

  STANDARDS TRACK: proposed|draft|final|deferred|rejected|obsolete
  JIG PROPOSAL   : proposed|deferred|rejected|obsolete
  INFORMATIONAL  : proposed|active|deferred|rejected|obsolete

  Is this correct?

- reference implementation; I'm assuming this is in tune with the
  proto/implementation decoupling initiative and could be in any
  language? (/me goes off to learn Haskell or something equally
  ridiculous)
