The pkguitil.get_data function is the *right* way to access package-relative data (because in the general case the data may not be on the file system), and IMO it would not be a good idea to make it easier to do things the "wrong" way.  Any deficiencies with get_data (and its visibility) will, I think, be addressed as part of the ongoing effort to make using zipped applications more convenient.

So I'm -1 on adding a convenience function for this.
