I know it's longer, but perhaps it would make sense to put the
bisection helper under "python -m test.support.bisect" in both Python
2 & 3?

Even in Python 3 "test.bisect" looks a bit like the test suite for the
bisect module to me - you have to "just know" that the latter actually
lives at "test.test_bisect".
