Agreed. And as Ram Rachum hinted, there seems little point aiming to duplicate things that already exist in the de facto standard scientific libraries. So I think there's a place for a non-naive carefully computed geometric mean in the std. lib. statistics module, but I wouldn't see the point of simply adding an exp-mean-log implementation (not that anyone is advocating that).
