Wow. I have no problem with not providing Python 3 by default, but
shipping a version that omits features that are non-optional parts of
the standard library is ridiculous. I'm getting more and more inclined
to make my default response to bug reports from people on
Debian/Ubuntu be "report it to your vendor or demonstrate it on a
vanilla build of Python" :-(
