-0 to have all types distributed in every module.
If you need those types to be there, the "type" module could be a
proxy to those, just to not repeat code.
But having them all in a single module is something explorable and
easy to document.
However, we could distribute them in a thousand modules, but we could
put in the Library Reference, in builtin types, the list of all, how
to use them, and from where import them...
