Nathaniel, what if we allow creating module objects from an existing dict instead of always creating a new one. Does this solve your namespace diversion problem?

FWIW, when I discovered this change I was quite surprised this came through without a PEP. I agree that the old rules were somewhat arbitrary, but this is a significant change with non-trivial compatibility concerns.
