Simply adding a note to the ImportError message would solve this problem "just
>>> import mypackage.foo
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named mypackage.foo
Note that subdirectories are searched for imports only if they contain an
__init__.py file: http://www.python.org/doc/essays/packages.html
