Skip, that's really for PEP 3108 to decide, not really my PEP 364. I
believe that the mechanism I describe in PEP 364 could support a
restructured stdlib, at least as far as renamed modules go.
Basically, it's just a hack to support aliasing an import of one name
(the old name) through the import of another name (the new name).
