I vote against it. Not that I am against mxTools - it is perfect
library, really.

There is always some need for something more. Do you really want to
include every bit of code into the Library? It would take infinite time to
download and compile Python distribution if all possible modules and
extensions come in.
I want to keep the Library as little as possible. Download, compile and
install only those extensions you need.
