It contains modules because it's not all spit into a single file but
properly split, which doesn't mean it must be a programmable
API. It's a prompt/cli tool to multiplex connections.
It broke because
it was built with python 3.6 hence  containing the required files
there. For unsupported AUR packages one must handle and
rebuild themselves.

I agree here that it should be called polysh without python prefix.
