I agree as well. Is anyone interested enough to ask the library author
if he supports doing this? That seems to be the main unanswered
But if anyone wants to argue the "the stdlib should be shrinking, not
growing" position, I suggest they do so *before* someone reaches out
to the module author. No point in us making the suggestion and then
being forced to withdraw it.
