But that provides little consolation to the user who sees it in the
standard library, is not aware to this discussion, and builds it into
his app.  Changes to the lib later may cause subtle but significant
effects.  ...perhaps undetected for a while.

I too agree.  If it is not ready, it is not ready.  Please don't create
problems for others.  Remove the lib until it is ready.
