I don't think this is a good idea. For one thing, it only works in a checkout or source tarball, something that most users aren't going to work with.
If we now publish that they can do "import Tools.demo.redemo" and so on, confusion will be great among those whose installation doesn't include Tools. In effect, you've added a new (and huge!) standard library package, and that's not something we do lightly or just before rc :)
Also, Tools is mostly interesting for developers only. I'd rather put the things useful for users into the standard library at some point.
