  I have but I'm always very cautious when creating a new package with the name of an old module. .pyc/.pycache files may still be there both for Mercurial developers and for Mercurial users using their deb/rpm package.
  I may be wrong, but if we could avoid weird bugs, I would prefer put in the `utils` package.
  I could have also copy `util.py` as `utils/__init__.py` but then I would have to update basically all Mercurial Python source files.

I'm thinking maybe:

- All net related functions in netutil.py
- All paths related functions in pathutil.py
- All cache related functions in cacheutil.py
