One implementation by George Sakkis is found in this thread: http://bugs.python.org/issue2279#msg82213
There are subtle issues with this feature. For example, a glob pattern could match both package data files and Python submodules, leading to the same .py files being included as modules and data. I’ll see how far I want to specify the behavior in tests and docs.
