As I said in a comment to Andrew's piece - the _best_ way is to pick up
a piece of the stdlib that annoys you, and fix it.

Attempting to setup a roadmap, or a plan, or whatever, will only mean
that nothing ever gets done. For instance, look at the long and sorry
history before PyPI. Many, many attempts to do some big picture thing,
and no result. What we have now isn't perfect, but it's a start. And
it was accomplished by one person (Richard) getting annoyed enough to
just roll up the sleeves and do it.
