[Python-Dev] Speaking of bug triage...

... just what are the different categories supposed to mean?
Specifically, what's the difference between "Library" and "Modules"?

The library-related open bugs in the "Library" category cover the
following modules:
  * anydbm
  * rfc822 (several!)
  * mimedecode
  * urlparse
  * cmath
  * CGIHTTPServer

And in the "Modules" category we have:
  * mailbox
  * socket/os
  * re/sre (several)
  * anydbm
  * xml/_xmlplus
  * cgi/xml

Hmmm... looks to me like there's no difference between "Library" and
"Modules" -- heck, I could have guessed that just from looking at the
names.  The library *is* modules!

Was this perhaps meant to be a distinction between pure Python and
extension modules?
