I would expect that the only reasonable way of getting a parsing
library in the stdlib would be to propose an established one from PyPI
to be moved into the stdlib - and that would require the active
support of the library author. I can't imagine any way that I'd
support a brand new parsing library getting put in the stdlib - the
area is sufficiently complex, and the external alternatives too
mature, to make having a new, relatively untried library in the stdlib
be a good idea.
