IMO, the Python standard library and "batteries included" is a mess. Despite being a Python contributor, I've very unmotivated to be a contributor because the time lag between contributing and deriving benefit from the contributions is too long. People had similar complaints about Zope releases. I'll note that the problem is exacerbated by the incompatibilities that (to some degree inevitably) often occur in Python releases. Big-bang releases don't prevent update problems.
