+1 Strong conventions would help a lot here, IMHO.

At least as useful would be a similar document explaining how to write
a Python package (contents of setup.py, doc/test subdirectories,
registering on PyPI, what to upload - bdist_wininst, egg, source, ...)
This would make the build/install experience much more consistent for
new packages.
