Maybe not on this particular subproposal, but IIUC, Eric was still looking
at the feasibility of doing auto-updates when parent paths change.

(Unless I'm mistaken, my sketch for PEP 402 should only need a bit of
hacking to allow setting the initial calculated path, so that there's not
an extra scan when a namespace package is initialized, and a change to make
it use find_module() instead of PEP 402's get_subpath().  Well, that, and
renaming "virtual packages" back to "namespace packages" in the error
messages and such.)
