Well, since it seems that the emphasis in Python development is now
moving more towards expanding the standard library, a module that has
only one function now might grow more functions in the not so distant
future, so I have to say that I'm on the side of not being unhappy
with the added module.  (I'm also secretly hoping that map, filter,
reduce, etc. will be moved to the functional module in the future,
maybe in Python 3.0.  But that's probably just my love for list
comprehensions and generator expressions speaking.) ;-)

You can wordify anything if you just verb it.
