There are many a useful package outside of the standard library. If this is
genuinely useful in some specialist use cases then I'm sure the code will
find its way to a github repo and be maintained as a standalone package in
itself. Who knows, being outside of the stdlib might breathe a new lease of
life into the concept if the release cycles are not bound to Python

Personally, I'd say delete it, unless there is a good reason not to.
