In my opinion the standard library and the core test suite (the language
validation stuff) are entirely independent beasts.  I can understand pieces
of the standard library not being available in one variant or another, but
key semantic aspects of the language proper should be constant across

That said, I agree that if the standard library is split off from CPython
then the relevant portions of the test suite should go along with it.
