Hi Simon

The idea of "donation" and the author relinquishing some control would
seem a good model for a "Secondary (Second?) Standard Library", but
would it be rather onerous for the developers of something like

HOpenGL has value in the current Platform model as it can be difficult
to build on certain platforms; but it is a very large work and quite
domain-specific so it is not exemplary in API terms like a candidate
for the Data.* or Control.* hierarchies should be.

Best wishes
