I would honestly prefer it to be merged into an already in-place module (maybe platform?) over it being added separately.
Why platform? That seems out of place.
Agreed. The typical approach is to put a renamed version into the stdlib, so that there's a possibility to continue using the package from PyPI.
If it were to be adopted into the stdlib, I think a top-level module name would be fine. psutil is great, but has anybody asked upstream if they even want to be part of the stdlib?
That'll have to happen first, indeed. The next question to answer is: Who will maintain the code in the stdlib ?
"Upstream" is Giampaolo Rodola, who is a core developer.
Cool. That makes the second question a lot easier to answer ;-)
