On its own, never. Somebody has to contribute it to Python, and that
somebody has to be the author.

However, it would be better if missing features where provided in
existing libraries, rather than introducing new libraries to replace
the existing ones (i.e. I would likely reject a patch to add yet another
argument parsing library - we already have getopt and optparse).
