Hi,

I believe it's already done.  The only thing that people tends to forget is that doing python -m "module.script(.py)" is only doing the equivalent of "python module/script.py". 

I believe it's clear though ;
https://docs.python.org/3/using/cmdline.html#cmdoption-m

Any module that anyone has done can do it, so it would be up to the module developer to put it in the README/Description of the module to describe how to use it.  That's what I think

BTW, I'm just giving my opinion out of contributing.  Please don't see it as a denial as it's not the case.  Python strive to be clearer but has 20 years of existence.  Enhancing it is hard.

Regards,
Eric Lafontaine
