Toward a “Kernel Python”
“We need a newer, leaner, unburdened ‘kernel’ Python. We need to dump the whole standard library out on the floor, adding back only the smallest bits that we need, so that we can tell what is truly necessary and what’s just nice to have.”

Use __main__.py in Python
“The magic file __main__.py is called when you run your project with the -m module flag. If you code is intended to be used a module first, and command line interface second, this makes perfect sense to use. Think of it as a place we can put whatever would be in our body of our if __name__ === "__main__" statement.”
