It is? Did I miss the memo? Because I've never even heard of TOML before this very moment.
He's referring to PEPs 518 and 517 , which indeed standardize on TOML as a file format for Python package build metadata.
I think moving anything into the stdlib would be premature though – TOML libraries are under active development, and the general trend in the packaging space has been to move things *out* of the stdlib (e.g. there's repeated rumblings about moving distutils out), because the stdlib release cycle doesn't work well for packaging infrastructure.
