It's actually not due to legal issues although we'd have to check w/ the
lawyers if we wanted to do it.  It's mainly that we don't want to ship a 
modified version of the standard library because it seems like it should
be standard.  It's also a little more convenient for us to not have to 
maintain a separate copy (although we do already do that for the tests).
