Is Python's organisation too federated? The BDFL acting too much on good faith?

For Python 3.0, release blocker to remove __cmp__ was forgot and had to be fixed in Python 3.0.1.

There is no quality control of the standard library, lots of modules come from nowhere, does batteries included also mean that random cruft is included as well? Certainly, an even, high standard of the Python library is more important than to include everything.

I do not know which is more important, but I agree there is stuff included with Python which seems relatively mediocre in quality and interface design, for example the "multiprocessing" module. I also think the "library" section is getting crowded considering how little structure it has, like "curses.textpad" grouped with "os", which is separated from "os.path".
