I think you should submit the PEP and run it by python-dev. I'm curious
to hear what Martin and others think.

I like the idea of doing something more radical that not only allows for
"namespace packages" or whatever term we settle on, but simplifies how
we explain packages. I think this proposal does that, at least for
people new to Python. For oldsters like me, it will take some time to
wrap my head around it.

I'm willing.
