While having a single standardised library is a nice goal, I think a
first step would be to highlight the current state and pros and cons
of the various options. 

Perhaps we could at least have wiki pages with recommendations?  So
that a potential user of some particular functionality - whether it
is database accesss, GUI, XML, web application development, and so on
- can make an as informed decision as possible? 

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
