I had rejected this idea in #29642. This is a copy of my comments in the issue.


I'm afraid this change makes testloader searches unrelated directory contains massive files (like node_modules).

I don't think loading all tests from whole namespace package is not usual use case.

When using import, (namespace) package name is explicitly specified.
Only specified name is searched.

In test loader's case, there are no such limit.
Loader may search millions of completely unrelated directories.
It may include directories in NFS or samba over slow network.
