About the name, why not intmath ?
Because cmath. But if most core developers prefer intmath, I have no objections.
And why not using sage ? Or create a package on pypi ?
Because some of these function could be useful in the stdlib. Because the special purposed module is a better home for some math functions. Because it is convenient to have these simple batteries included. Sage is too heavyweight.
The reasons are the same as for adding factorial() and gcd() in the math module. But after adding more such functions it is better to move them into the special module.
