Magnavox is free to make proprietary connection cable.  BNSF is free
to make train car trucks that are not 11' across.  Python programmers
are free to do X their way.

The std. lib. has readability and reliability problems.  Individuals
created their own slightly varying implementation.  It has its own
quirks and naming conventions.  This is RCA cable; it goes in.
