In the Python world, a package is a directory with an __init__.py file.
 Distutils and distutils2 try to avoid confusion and call the other
things “distributions”.

Of course, everyone outside of the Python world thinks a distribution is
an operating system that has a free kernel and a package manager.  Maybe
we should trade “distributions” for “bundles”.
