> This deprecation and eventual removal, will result in a pypi module created with such functionality anyway, that everyone will try to pull in.... or falling that copying in.

That's the plan, right.

The stdlib is not the right place for things that change this often. Just look at how many semi standards we've seen in the last few years. There's no point in trying to follow these in a slow moving code base as the Python stdlib. It's much better to put the functionality into a PyPI module which can be updated much more frequently.

Perhaps you could upload your code to PyPI and then reference it here for people to find ?!
