Does Python really follow its philosophy of "Readability counts"?

But you keep failing to explay why do you need it to be _part of the standard_ 
library (or whatever).

If you need it in your project, _use_ it. If you don't, then don't use it. If 
_you_ need that thing you call security, just use it already and quit 
complaining that we don't use it. Is there a policy in your project that you 
can't use any external?
