Jim, you want to have most things separate, if I've read your recent
posts to the dev and 3k lists correctly. Lean and mean Python
distribution. I'd agree with you if we had the infrastructure for it,
something which would function at least as well as apt-get does,
pulling dependencies and doing platform and version checks
automatically. But I don't think Python is anywhere near that level
of infrastructure, and it's a bit of a stretch just to maintain the
infrastructure that currently exists. Given that, I think that moving
functionality out of the standard library would damage Python, not
improve it. Given that, I'd rather see what's in the stdlib be
updated to best-of-breed, instead of
the-first-thing-we-thought-of-in-1995, as all too much of it is.
