Let me take back 'strict process' and replace it with:

Everything added in pkglib should be a basic feature/implementation that 
does not force the tools to change the
way *they* see their build/release/UI processes.

The most sophisticated feature I am thinking about is the set of apis in 
They are APIs to browse and interact with PyPI, and they are useful to 
many projects,  so I think it fits my definition.

otho, anything relating to compilation should not be added there, unless 
it's APIs to get some aggregated info,
like on the top of platform/sys/etc
