Let's discuss some practicalities then. How about we just start renaming
modules in the p3yk branch, and make a new lib-old (it's currently empt)
that holds aliases for the old names -- but that raise an ImportWarning when
imported. (If that warning class still exists -- something tells me we
disabled again, but I don't remember the details.) The refactoring tool
should be usable for code rewrites, I think, considering there won't be any
implicit relative imports anymore, but we could do it by search-and-replace
or spot-the-warnings, too.
