This issue is about fractions and statistics, which are closer to typical user libraries than CPython libraries. In fact, both could easily be packages on PyPI instead of part of the standard library.

If math.as_integer_ratio() existed, probably SageMath would use it. On the other hand, the code for math.as_integer_ratio() is simple enough that SageMath could easily implement it if needed.
