Last night Barry Warsaw, Jason Coombs, and I met to work on implementing PEP 382. As part of my research, I came across this email from Martin: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2009-May/089316.html In it he says that PEP 382 is being deferred until it can address PEP 302 loaders. I can't find any follow-up to this. I don't see any discussion in PEP 382 about PEP 302 loaders, so I assume this issue was never resolved. Does it need to be before PEP 382 is implemented? Are we wasting our time by designing and (eventually) coding before this issue is resolved? Eric.
