cooluri and realurl is like pest / cholera. I choose realurl as hell 
since more people know it and way more people use it over cooluri.

Introduction package is a show-case of common stuff of CMS. A routing 
component is included since it is a basic feature of web in 2015 and 
thus part of the showcase. Only problem is that core can not do it on 
its ow.

Exactly. realurl is fully namespaced and BE modules are rewritten in 
forks. These patches were not accepted and an ugly layer was introduced 
instead. Dmitry insists on being the only one who can maintain realurl 
and basically never accepts anything from someone else. This is like a 
truck factor of 1 with the person being hit already. From core point of 
view, this is not acceptable for a functionality that is a hard 
requirement in all serious projects.

Great. So we need it in the core now.
