This is outside the scope of the standard library.  I expanded this section of the evolution page (https://github.com/apple/swift-evolution#out-of-scope) to clarify that:

Out of Scope
• Major new Library Functionality: The Swift Standard Library is focused on providing core "language" functionality as well as common datastructures. The "corelibs" projects are focused on providing existing Foundation functionality in a portable way. Major new libraries (e.g. a new Logging subsystem) are best developed as independent projects on GitHub (or elsewhere) and organized with the Swift Package Manager. Beyond Swift 3 we may consider standardizing popular packages or expanding the scope of the project. We will consider minor extensions to the existing feature set.
