<br>Ok, so be it. Let this be a pronouncement -- the only stdlib reorg<br>we're doing will be (a) deleting silly old stuff; (b) rename modules<br>that don't conform to the current module/package naming convention,<br>like StringIO, cPickle or UserDict.
</blockquote><div><br>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.
