I keep casting glances at PEP 206
(http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0206.html), Moshe's "Batteries
Included" PEP, and thinking it should be updated.  PEP 206 suggests
something quite simple, a script that downloads a bunch of listed
packages and added them to the Python core to make a "sumo

The core once included an Extensions/ subdirectory for things that
were automatically built as part of Python's build process.  Perhaps
we could add some extensibility -- e.g. Python's setup.py will
automatically check for subdirectories in Extensions/ and run their
setup.py scripts.
