It must be convenient to operate in an environment where you can install
new software so easily Armin.

For those of us that operate in environments where every new piece of
software has to go through contracts review to ensure that we can both
license it for our own purposes and also subsequently transfer those
licenses to our customers, having things in the standard library is a
*huge* benefit.

This is the usual batteries included vs better packaging argument. For
developers in an environment where adding new packages is a low overhead
operation, adding something to the stdlib isn't a big gain for them
while better packaging tools are awesome. For others (including me), the
actual package installation is the least of our hassles and anything
that helps us avoid dealing with the lawyers is a big gain.
