I don't see why that's a problem.

If BeautifulSoup version 2.0.3 is imported as module BeautifulSoup__v2_0_3 
from a module of that name in an egg, then that's what it's called as far 
as the import system is concerned.  Users can refer to it by whatever name 
they desire:

BeautifulSoup = pkg_resources.import("BeautifulSoup>=2, <3")
