[Idea] Moving the `Either` type into `core`?

Coming from this post I'm wondering, given the popularity of https://crates.io/crates/either:

  • Is it possible to move Either into core for better visibility?
  • What could be preventing this from happening?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

This feels more like a question for IRLO.

Either has been in the standard library previously, and has been removed in 2014:

Indeed! Thanks for pointing me to that :slight_smile:

To be fair, that does not mean it can't be readded. A lot used to be in stdlib before 1.0, and a fair amount has been readded.
