I don't think you're using the correct terminology.  The standard  
library is what is shipped with the interpreter.  It's the only thing  
that's common between all users of that interpreter, i.e. it's standard.

The PSF does not maintain add-on libraries, nor can it make guarantees  
about other add-ons libraries.

Again, why?

Frankly, comparing and contrasting with other languages is very  
useful, I have little to no idea what you're talking about, and doubt  
it's got anything to do with the development of the Python language.
