  I think this is a really annoying thing; the Python package
directory is used as a general dumping ground for a bunch of stuff
other than the actual package code.  (README, documentation and demo
directories, etc.)
  I think the right approach is to have a distribution directory that
contains the package directory and the other stuff.  For those of use
that use a CVS checkout named "xml", we'd get something like:


  The packaged distribution should end up like this:


  This is the way the distutils tree is laid out (in part because I
pressured Greg to do it that way;).
  Does anyone else agree?  Alternatives?
