great, thanks.

I'm clear on that -- every package has moved to using namespaces over 
the years.

The PIL Handbook 
(<http://www.pythonware.com/library/pil/handbook/index.htm>) uses 
'import Image' throughout.

That's a pretty old document. I don't know what Fredrik thinks, but 
given that those are the docs, it's best to support it. However, my 
suggested change only effects how py2app finds PIL, I don't think it 
would break any user code.

No harm in having both ways, though.
