I agree and would add the ldap module.

My feeling is that once a module is included in the standard library
the level of documentation and testing improves significantly. I've
always prefered the python way of including libraries over perl.

If the distro is too large you could always modify the installer to
allow users to choose which modules to include(like ms office does
with apps).
