New submission from Madison May:
Naming a file `io.py` in the root directory of a project causes the following error on 2.7:
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'BufferedIOBase'
Similar issues arise on 3.x., although the error message is a bit more useful:
Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: can't initialize sys standard streams AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'OpenWrapper'
At the very least we should ensure that the error message is a bit more straightforward and clear, as I imagine its not all that uncommon to cause this kind of conflict.
