Has there been a decision yet on including Pygame in the base system?
Including dependencies it comes to about 3.7M, though I think this can
be shrunk to about 2-2.5 by removing unneeded code (for example, only a
small chunk of Numeric is actually needed). This is an API that many
people are already familiar with, and I think it would help encourage
more people to develop applications. If the size is a big concern, I had
a concept to try making something API compatible but backending to
GTK/Hippo/Cairo/CSound. This is looking a bit harder that I expected, so
I figured I should ask first. Ideas, comments, concerns?
