This is an example that I personally find ill-justified.  Particularly
annoying is the fact that opening __init__.py gives you a list of
relative imports and sends you to the next file for everything else.
Having both main.py and __main__.py seems redundant.    What were the
benefits  that justified unittest.py split?
