But maybe [some of those] TS's should be permanent fixtures, sort of like
associated libraries (SAL) [with added support in the language where
required, to accommodate those]. The 2D Graphics should be in there as
well. Writing client/server applications and/or 2D games are not things
everybody does, they should not be standard libraries. But there are more
of course, f.e., a GUI lib and a Crypto lib.
