[...] It would be convenient to simplify this procedure by recognizing ``__getattr__`` defined directly in a module that would act like a normal ``__getattr__`` method
The ``__getattr__`` function at the module level should accept one argument which is the name of an attribute and return the computed value or raise an ``AttributeError``::
def __getattr__(name: str) -> Any: ...
This function will be called only if ``name`` is not found in the module through the normal attribute lookup.
The Rationale (quoted in the beginning of this email) easily leaves a different impression of this.
I don't see how. This is exactly the way normal __getattr__ works.
