I think this is something to seriously consider for Python 1.7. I
don't think it's so hard technically, but there are a couple of
issues. (One is: if the first <pkg> directory found doesn't have
__init__.py, and the second one does, is the first part of the
package? Currently, it's not.) This should be brought up on
python-dev after 1.6 has been released; we don't have time to deal
with that much mail before then! ;)
