I thought about it... but... how much trouble is it to get something into 
the standard library these days?

For me, there is no need since I have one in my own library collection, 
among others. However, with cheeseshop and setuptools getting better it
makes the standard library less important. Just "easy_install" some
package and you've got it.

So, the question I have is it even worth it to add anything to the
standard library?
