And IMHO, a good thing. PIL/Pillow need not be so special as to make claim to
so much of the top-level namespace. Of course, there's the backward
compatibility problem to deal with, but this is the right long-term change.

I think that Matthias would like to just swap-in Pillow for PIL in Debian and
Ubuntu. This gives application the additional opportunity to more easily port
to Python 3.

One thing that would be helpful would be to review my merge proposal for that
bug, to see if there are any other top-level modules that should be exposed by
the PILcompat.pth file. The current set is described in Matthias's comment
with the merge proposal here:
