Please explain how this is a problem. As Steven said, there is NO
useful difference. I don't *care* whether it's a package, a module, or
whatever. Module with class with static member? Fine. Package with
module with class? Also fine. Imported special object that uses dunder
methods to simulate either of the above? What's it matter to me, as
long as I get my final result!

Syntactic salt is seldom helpful.
