I suspect I'd have a harder time living without the sys module than with
many of the builtins.  Then there's os, re, math, ...  Some modules, like
thread and sys, have to be linked into the interpreter.  Are they "core" or
"add on"?  Once you start migrating stuff from the "add on" manual (Library
Reference) to the "core" manual (Language Reference), where do you stop?
