New submission from Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr>:

Stating module files of the form "xxxmodule.so" consumes all 1/3 of stat calls at startup. Looking at the site-packages folders on my machine, both for 2.7 and 3.2, reveals no C extension that follows such naming.

This patch deprecates such module namings, so that they can be removed in a later version.
