Would this support the following case:

I have a package called mortar, which defines useful stuff:

from mortar import content, ...

I now want to distribute large optional chunks separately, but ideally 
so that the following will will work:

from mortar.rbd import ...
from mortar.zodb import ...
from mortar.wsgi import ...

Does the PEP support this? The only way I can currently think to do this 
would result in:

from mortar import content,..
from mortar_rbd import ...
from mortar_zodb import ...
from mortar_wsgi import ...

...which looks a bit unsightly to me.
