I am totally agree with Wolfgang:

> they make it impossible to know whether a directory found on the filesystem is *intended* as a Python package or not.

I think we shouldn't treat normal directory as namespace package until some portion in the directory is imported, or it is specified explicitly.

So walk_packages() should be used like:

  walk_packages("/path/to/namespace", "namespace")

I already rejected similar issue: #29642.

If you can not agree with me, please make an thread in python-dev ML or
