PIL is older than most Python conventions, and PIL's programming API
tends to be *extremely* stable (on purpose).
(Note that the style guide says that "__version__" should contain the
VCS revision number, which isn't that helpful. It also says that the
__name__ form is for magic stuff. And for completeness, Python's own
version number is of course found in "sys.version". Consistency...)
