I have no particular interest in changing the stdlib as it exists now.  It is what it is, I don't care if there's extra stuff in it and I'm now long settled into working around all bugs I encounter.  While I think there are past situations that exemplify certain problems, I'm really just bringing them up as examples.  But pip and distutils2 aren't settled into anything, and I don't want us to retrace bad paths just because they are so well trod.
