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.
