Description Switched the standard lib English-list-clause generation mechanism to using the serial comma (aka the Oxford comma).
Reason I was convinced of the value of the serial comma by this apocryphal book dedication which does not use the serial comma: "Dedicated to my parents, Ayn Rand and God." Clearly, the absence of the serial comma may lead to factual errors.
Result Ain Soph uses the serial comma.
