undocumented functions in pkgutil

P: n/a
I see that the pkgutil module has many useful functions which are
however undocumented.
Does anybody know why it is so? In particolar, can I safely use
pkg.walk_packages
without risking a change of interface in the future? I looks unlikely,
since pkgutil is
used in setuptools, but I want to be sure before relying on it.

We don't change the API of undocumented functions. However, if you
find these functions useful and would like to work on documenting
these, please email do**@python.org.
