That's too late for 3.3, IMO. Whether or not test.support is too large is a matter of taste (we have larger files in the stdlib; what makes test.support annoying to work with is that it's a hodge-podge of utility functions with little care for consistency). Unless we can clearly separate it in thematic areas, making it a package would only make finding stuff more difficult. ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue15403> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
