I get more than that when I tab in an empty shell on my box.

Why do you expect to be able to inspect a module of the size of numpy
with tab-completion. I agree that for this usecase (which is more a
question of discovering/exploring the API than using it) a nested
namespace is better. And as I think this usecase is valid, this is why I
like the proposition of having an "api" submodule, with a nested
namespace.

My two cents,

Gaël
