Of course, a proper patch would work that way and I can submit one
if there's demand. The attached patch was the result of a programmatic
patching system that uses search & replace. That's why it uses this
awkward style.

It does: if fullname is None, it returns self.fullname.

It is deprecated in 3.4, but not in 2.7 and for 2.7 I consider this
a bug, since pkgutil claims to support frozen packages in the
ImpImporter doc-string.
