There's a natural desire to minimize the dependencies in your code.  If
stuff you want is in the stdlib, you don't need any 3rd-party package
dependencies to use it, therefore people want to get the stuff they like
into the stdlib.

Also, having something in the stdlib (assuming it is good enough) means
it's easier to choose one of several competing APIs that 3rd-party
packages may provide.
