Got it!  I think when I first submitted this issue my primary concern was where the resource files live in different development/deployment contexts.  Looking at sysconfig.cfg makes it all pretty clear, though it was hard to find this information a while ago.

So what exactly is the verdict then?  Keep package_data for now, but encourage resources, and dump data_files all together?  Or...?
