I am really looking forward to the implementation of this PEP and I am 
glad that it is close to acceptance. One thing that is not really clear 
to me is how module-only packages are handled. Say I have a package 
"foo" that installs the file "foo.py" to site-packages, where would I 
install "foo.pyi" and py.typed to? Or is this case not supported and I 
have to convert the foo module into a package containing just __init__.py?
