1. When you say "We need to", I assume that means you have some
open pull requests or are working on some, right?
2. Everything but the math library is extremely prone to change
within a couple of years and is therefore not really a good
candidate for standardization. There's a reason that there are
three different ways to connect to a MySQL database within the
PHP standard library: they tried to standardize something that
shouldn't really be standardized.
