I have an sw eng question that's somewhat Python specific (or at least, depends on a similar import mechanism). I asked it on main SO, but now wonder if it belongs here.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/66402711/loading-same-named-classes-with-importlib-based-on-directory-name-what-are-the/
The comment implying I shouldn't be asking how to improve working code [even if that's untrue for main SO] makes me think this would be a better home. Thoughts?

@rwong I think you are ascribing a lot of bad faith.
But it's true, the people who deeply cared about community building like MichaelT and Shog9 are no longer around…
Personally, I stopped caring since the fall 2019 debacle, and just answer/close whatever I like/dislike without overarching goals or philosophy.
@rwong Reddit is mostly great for discussion, but awful for Q&A. Alone the fact that you can't edit OP's questions on Reddit is a huge problem, and any Q&A-heavy subreddit gets the same question over and over again. But there's no proper tagging etc to organize and link posts.
Note that in this instance, the edit by a community member (Doc) helped to get the question reopened. That flexibility and nuance is missing in Reddit moderation.
But yes, r/ProgrammingLanguages would have been a wonderful place for this question.
@CynicallyNaive Software Engineering is more about conceptual questions. But your core question “What, if any, could be the unintended consequences arising from this design?” strikes me as too broad/unclear. If you were interested in lower-level feedback about your code then the Code Review site could be appropriate, but your question is clearly design-level. Tricky.
