I should probably mark that PEP as abandoned or deferred, since for
various reasons, it seems like this is not what Python-dev feels is
needed [1].

> Is the PEP considering all non-private APIs public even if they are
> not documented? If so we might want to be up front about that and say
> so to make sure we are all very careful about making all non-essential
> APIs private (assuming this PEP gets accepted).
> And we might want to say that all code in 'test' sub-packages are not
> subject to backwards compatibility unless documented. I have a ton of
> support code in importlib.test that I do not want to have to maintain
> for public consumption as they are meant solely for testing purposes
> by me. If you read the PEP it would suggest that all modules in test
> are subject to the PEP's compatibility policy which is obviously
> absurd.
