Not a bug, but a question to developers:

Is xml.etree.ElementTree going to be the only standard library module in 
Python 3.0 that doesn't follow the standard Python 3.0 module naming 
conventions? (e.g., socketserver, configparser, etc.).   Are there any 
plans to rename it to xml.etree.elementtree?

Just curious.

ElementTree is maintained externally, that's why it wasn't renamed
during the stdlib reorganization :

So let's close this as "won't fix".
