A circular and therefore useless definition.  Given any implementation
X and a feature Y not supported by X, one can equally well say that
either 1) X is not an implementation of Python because Y is part of
"standard Python"; or 2) Y is not part of "standard Python" because
implementation X doesn't support it.
