[Python-Dev] PEP 294: Type Names in the types Module

Check the rationale:

| Most types are accessible as either builtins or in the new module but some
| types such as traceback and generator are only accssible through the types
| module under names which do not match the type name.  This PEP provides a
| uniform way to access all basic types under a single set of names.

  It doesn't bother me that people say things like
   "you'll never get anywhere with this attitude".
   In a few decades, it will make a good paragraph
      in my biography. You know, for a laugh.
