Speaking for Jython, it would be very helpful if the stdlib was
considered a separate entity in a more official way than it is now.
Jython already uses the stdlib this way (sort of), we have an
svn:externals entry that just pulls the stdlib down. Today, we
maintain a largish number of the modules with local patches that
replace some modules as part of our build process. It would be nicer
if we could do less patching at build time. BTW - I don't mean that I
expect others to do this work for us, a couple of us have commit
rights to help this along.
