OK, so to summarize this  thread:

- __init__.py files are empty

unless for the convenient import of other modules located in the same package or in a subpackage?

Actually, primarily for convenient import by external packages.


- public interfaces are stored in interfaces.py

- private interfaces are written along with the implementation code

- what about file names with an underscore at the beginning? They are used in zope.schema for instance

A Python convention is that a leading underscore indicates privateness.

- what about import paths inside a same package: relative or absolute?

   from mypackage.interfaces import ISomeInterface
or:
   from interfaces import ISomeInterface

Absolute always.  Until the Python import mechanism is fixed, *always*
use absolute imports.
