I'm not sure what this would achieve -- people who don't know enough
about Python to add __init__.py files aren't going to know enough to
make suppressed-by-default warnings not suppressed.

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of saying
something when an import fails only because of a missing __init__.py
file.  I guess I should try to implement it...


  I also feel it essential to note, [...], that Description Logics,
  non-Monotonic Logics, Default Logics and Circumscription Logics 
  can all collectively go suck a cow. Thank you.
