If I've missed any arguments against the py-package idea, please let me know.
Nobody has the energy or enthusiasm to push it - write a PEP, create a 2to3 fixer, propose specific renames (ftplib -> py.ftp for example), gather opinions, summarise arguments, convince Guido, etc etc.
If you do that I think most people would be +1 or at least +0 on it. If you think about it it is just a "py." more.
But please take a look at http://codespeak.net/py/dist/misc.html#the-py-std-hook if you are going to change that maybe this should go in also. Then you dont need import py.sys to just get py.sys.args in a simple script for example. And even in really big python project you get a lot of imports to just get one function that is going to be used once in the file.
