The FAQ has this weird statement:
“This specification does not have an opinion on how you should organize your code. The .data directory is just a place for any files that are not normally installed inside site-packages or on the PYTHONPATH.”
I mean to say that just because there is a .data/ directory it doesn't mean you have to stop using pkgutil.get_data(package, resource). Some people will take those 4 letters "data" to mean that any file that doesn't start with .py has to go there instead of in the root of the archive.
