If necessary, I'll prefer to add each and every module by hand, that I
need... That's a lot better than forcing everyone to have the complete
standard library installed.

Not everyone wants / can afford huge rootfs', but might still prefer /
require a few smaller python applications.

You'd be welcome to suggest that people try to install the complete
pyhton(3)-modules package, as that makes it easier for everyone with
large eMMC's and SD-cards, though.
