Sounds like a great idea for a package on PyPI. Once it's useful and
popular you can propose it for inclusion in the standard library.

>From a quick google I found this:

Though I don't really know which algorithms would go in an "Algorithms
Library". You might want to be more specific about that.

Good luck,
