[Python-Dev] Libref sections to put new modules under?

Any thoughts on where documentation for the new "contextlib" module should 
go in the library reference?

Some candidates:

* Program Frameworks (???)
* Development Tools (??)
* Python Runtime Services (?)
* Python Language Services (??)
* Miscellaneous Services (??)

A similar issue exists for "ctypes" module, although I imagine an argument 
could easily be made for putting it with "Optional Operating System Services".

wsgiref can probably go in "Internet Protocols and Support", while 
ElementTree obviously goes under "Structured Markup Processing Tools".

What other new modules do we have going in 2.5 that haven't found a home in 
the documentation yet?  I seem to recall some discussion about a decorator 
library or functools or something of that sort.
