Oops, my apologies for starting the confusion.  I stupidly used
conventional meanings for "module" and "package" instead of 
reserving those for their specific Python meanings.  Substitute
something "extensions" for package, and maybe "DLL wrapper" or 
"library interface" for module in my above message and maybe it 
becomes a little clearer.  Or not.

If not, well, we're already all confused enough that this won't
hurt much. :)
