I'm intrigued. I thought this was merely so that one could do
python -m mypackage.mysubpackage
Can you refer me to the rationale and discussion about this feature?

Easily bundling dependencies is a key principle behind the ability to execute directories and zipfiles that contain a top level __main__.py file that was added back in 2.6 (although the zipfile version doesn't play nicely with extension modules).
