standard libraries i meant the standard libraries used.
and what i asked for is for(in python) both the standard-libraries and the
standard libraries used.
c the term (intra and inter library management) which includes the default
standard libraries and other standard libraries

if you talk about security then nothing is secure for sure!
in PyPI ppl can upload their application as egg.

what if there is another site where only eggs of python.org containing
add-on standard libraries are distributed
 and noone is allowed to upload stuff except the python.org or PSF.

Not exactly via PyPI but something similar to it.
and don't compare C++ with python. both have their own + & -
