My colleague uses modules called `My' to hold functions that seem like 
they should be in a library, but which aren't yet mature enough to be 
I've always thought of MissingH the same way.  It would make a good 
place for new functions like intercalate to be placed while they are 
being considered.

But eventually, good functions and modules should graduate.  
ConfigParser and HVFS are good candidates to be standalone libraries, as 
you say.  I've been meaning to submit the 'merge' function that we sent 
you, as well.

If MissingH acted as a general waystation, we could keep a stable 
library base installed on our systems, but get the latest that people 
are talking about by pulling in that one package.
