I assume that by LIBRARIES you mean the stdlib?  Once you've mastered 
all of them, a couple of hundred at most which shouldn't take more than 
a few minutes, it shouldn't take too very much longer to get to grips 
with the 64337 packages listed on pypi alone.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
