    As a Python, not a C user, I'd chime in on behalf of
    non-developers especially to say Yes, please keep
    the python versions of std library modules. They
    are much used.

    In pro: The python implementations are legible.
    They can be followed step by step in the interpreter,
    with added printout statements, that amazing debug,
    to understand What the commands do and what
    else they could do or not do. It's not always
    obvious otherwise what data-structures they expect.

    The python modules are especially useful because
    they include descriptions of how they came about
    and what the parameters are for the different cases,
    who wrote them and what the problems in use are.
    Even the dates help figure out whether they'll fit
    with other pieces.

    Just getting things to work comes way before
    speed considerations when you're not so expert
    [yet ;-].

    So for developers to be putting them routinely
    through [unit] tests is good, because it'd be terribly
    hard to figure them out if they didn't work!

    Thanks for suggesting in the python-dev
    summary, Brett, that we can add our comments.
    And thanks to all the developers who care
    and do such a thorough job.
