I don't see how is a problem. A script named ldap.py can't clash with
python-ldap since you would be specifying the path to run the script. For a
module, we would have to be *installing* it as a top-level module to be

During the test run, we add our own paths to the front of PYTHONPATH
for obvious reasons.

If what you were saying was true, then Python programmers would
constantly be worrying about their non-toplevel module names and
scripts clashing with any possible top-level python modules that could
possibly used *somewhere*. Fortunately that is not the case.
