Interesting.  I saw the same behavior on 2.7.7 as well:

$ python2
Python 2.7.7 (default, Jun  3 2014, 01:46:20) 
[GCC 4.9.0 20140521 (prerelease)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from pkg import foobar
>>> foobar
<module 'pkg.foobar' from 'pkg/foobar.py'>

Anyways, it doesn't bother me too much.  I opened a ticket because I couldn't find an already open bug about it or any reference to it on google (although the keywords aren't great for google searches).
