My example was bad. If I make it "stuff that might be changed at
the site", I see that the right solution is to have a file outside the
package rather than inside it.
I still don't like having to have two copies of the Python files to
support multiple platforms for a couple of package modules, but that's
very different and not clearly anything other than personal
preference. I'm sure someone else can come up with a really good
argument against it, though.
