Brett and I (I forget who else was there for this) talked about where to situate the PEP 292 support. The interesting idea came up to turn the string module into a package, providing backward support for the existing string module API, then exporting my PEP 292 modules into this namespace.
I'm fine with providing dstring inside the string module. -1 on making it a package. I see no advantage for having a package with three files, some of them containing only a single class, over having it all in a single module.
