https://docs.python.org/3/reference/import.html#module-path says that "regardless of its value", __path__'s mere existence is key. But then later the docs say "__path__ must be an iterable of strings, but it may be empty". Technically the latter is more accurate, so the docs should get touched up to match itself better.
