I spent my very early coding days making a lot of libraries and not ever really making useful apps with them. It's sort of what I crave to do, it's a very satisfying form of mental masturbation for the type-A OCD coder inside me. To fight that I really don't let myself go off and do that too much any more, and I think maybe I fight it too much. There are some basic libraries that I don't have that I would find very convenient.

1. A standard set of functions for working with file specs and paths, and for doing standard command line app type arg parsing, file spec qualifying, renaming, etc.

2. A standard very basic 3d app harness and 3d drawing utils. How in the world do I not have this?
