This has been discussed on python-dev (I proposed it actually). The
final consensus was that no such implementation would be included at
this time, as it's a pretty simple thing to implement, and there are
already several implementations in the Cookbook.

My arguments included the fact that there were several implementations
in the Cookbook as an indication it should be included in the standard
library ...
