New submission from Raymond Hettinger <raymond.hettinger at gmail.com>:

The open-module command is a fast effective way to examine source code regardless of where it sits on sys.path; however, it gets lost when seeking a package name.  Instead of aborting, it could bring-up the __init__.py file.

For example, "open-module unittest" or "open-module collections" which both used to work before they became packages could open Lib/unittest/__init__.py and Lib/collections/__init__.py.
