Your patch seems to be missing most of the code, new files are not included.

I would argue that a Mandelbrot texture is too specific to be used practically. Perhaps you can share some practical examples for this texture?

sorry my diff didn't include the files i added

We're unlikely to accept a node like this. It's nice as an example OSL script, but because of maintenance cost and GPU rendering performance impact this should not be built-in functionality.

Is there some real life usage which is common enough which i am not aware of?

While the texture looks cool, having it as a built-in texture have consequences, which Brecht outlined.
