Perhaps so, but Guido was also quite keen to get PEP-282 implemented
for inclusion in 2.3, and pronounced on the code that I put forward for
inclusion. The original code was all in one module - I partitioned it
into a package with subpackages as part of the review process conducted
on python-dev, in which Guido and several others took an active part.

I'm not sure that there really is a problem here, other than naming
convention. Since it's not practical to turn the clock back, my vote
would be to just live with it. I'd rather focus my energies on
functional improvements such as better configuration, etc. Not that I
get as much time as I'd like to work on improvements to logging - but
we've probably all been in an analogous position :-(
