Naturally I've looked at that TOC to get ideas, but many of those
topics are covered already by existing modules. I would agree with
Mark that the Python standard library is thus not useful for further
inspiration;  once you have the basic 'core' library, then the
everything else can be done by package management.  I know LuaRocks is
not as widely used as it could be [1] but it handles the dependency
and the delivery problems well.

Documentation generally remains a problem, but we're not alone with this one.

[1] It would be interesting to look at the bad experiences people have
had with LuaRocks, or reasons for general resistance.
