Move files/directories to Recycle Bin using standard Python libs

I would like to move files and directories to the Recycle Bin on 
Windows from Python.  I have found some older articles describing how 
to do this, but they require additional packages to be installed.  I'm 
working on a plugin for an existing project and only have the standard 
library to work with.  Is there a way to use the Recycle Bin using 
standard Python?
