[Python-ideas] Simpler namespace packages

I was reading over PEP 382 and am not sure I really understand how it
is a worthwhile step forward. Namespace packages are currently a mess
and personally if anyone asks me I recommend not using the
currently-available approach at all.
Would it be possible to allow a more simple definition, for example
putting the dot itself in the filename? Where these would be similar?
Obviously this is not fully-defined, but would this kind of approach
fill the same need and be nicer to use, create, find, and understand
then what is proposed in PEP 382?
