pkg_util.get_data('mypackage', 'resourcename')

returns None if 'mypackage' is a namespace package, because the package object has no __file__ attribute.  A shell script is attached to reproduce this.

This is either a bug to be fixed (my preference) or behavior to be documented.  If there is equivalent, working functionality in the new importlib, that would also be a good to document.
