I would paint this particular bikeshed "foo.nspart", since it's a part
of a namespace. "foo.contrib" sounds like a license to me.
Although since the PEP uses "portion" to describe what these are, I
guess I could live with "foo.portion" as well.
I do have some thoughts on the other emails in this thread, but no time
today to write them up.
