Adopting/recommending a toml parser?

It wouldn’t be.

I don’t think it would break all toml users, but it is a reason to not go with that name in the stdlib.

Not necessarily.

At this point I think a PEP is necessary. I can sponsor it but I don’t have the bandwidth to be an author on it. I would review here and the issue on potential concerns to address in the PEP. And to be clear, this would be a standards-track PEP and not a packaging PEP, so that means it will be going to python-dev and the SC.
