Somewhat related, there is a keyring module, the functionality of which I've sometimes wished were part of the stdlib:
It supports the big three OSs.
We've learned from experience that these kinds of module are better coupled to operating system update cycles than they are to Python language definition update cycles.
However, a case could potentially be made for a pip-style bundling arrangement that provides the other benefits of stdlib inclusion (python-dev's technical endorsement, PSF's legal blessing), without incurring the costs (i.e. coupling to the language update cycle for feature additions).
