I agree, there are some rather, ehm, suboptimal modules in the stdlib
(e.g. ConfigParser, logging), and if one needs a good solution for
something, (s)he would always install some addition (or code it
her|himself). So perhaps a better way to handle "standard modules"
would be a standard package manager (like ActivePerl's ppm).

Otherwise it would be nice to declare Twisted "Python standard" this way.
(But perhaps it would frighten off Python newbies who are only looking
for a simple network library...)
