No, too much assuming causes these problems.  I said "Due to the way
that python works, if any part of a python's module".  However you
assumed I was speaking about a python module PACKAGE.  Now, did I say
Package?  No, I said module.  Pretty hard to remove a quote that didn't
exist.  Please don't put words in my mouth.
