While I agree that I like how this looks, and that it keeps things simple, I
don't think it's too feasible. The problem is the tempest namespace is already
kind of large and established. The libification effort, while reducing some of
that, doesn't eliminate it completely. So what this ends meaning is that we'll
have to do a rename for a large project in order to split certain functionality
out into a smaller library. Which really doesn't seem like the best way to do
it, because a rename is a considerable effort.

Another wrinkle to consider is that the tempest namespace on pypi is already in
use: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Tempest so if we wanted to publish the library
as tempest we'd need to figure out what to do about that.
