  Python 3.7's importing mechanism offers a new "resource reader"
  API that allows module loaders to provide an object which can be
  used for obtaining information and data about "resources" in a
  Python package. This API is the new recommended way for modules
  to load data for non-module entities, such as text files and
  other support files residing next to sources. This functionality
  is similar to pkg_resources (which has existed for a long time)
  and, which was introduced in Python 3
  and is deprecated in favor of ResourceReader.
  Using a "resource reader" is a superior approach to pkg_resources
  because it is newer and faster. And both are superior to __file__
  based filesystem reading because they allow the storage of
  resources in places that aren't the filesystem. This allows things
  like embedding resources in zip files or single file binaries.
  This commit introduces a "resource reader" API into the procutil
  We introduce an compatible class
  which can load resources from the filesystem.
  We introduce another class that wraps an existing ResourceReader
  so callers don't need to worry about bytes/str differences.
  Finally, there is a new "resourcereader()" that returns a
  ResourceReader for a given Python package. The idea is that
  code will call ``pycompat.resourcereader(__package__)`` (or
  similar) to obtain an object conforming to then from there on, things will
  look like they would as if the code were Python 3.7 native.
  The ultimate goal is to remove the dependence on __file__
  and util.datapath so non-module data file access is abstract
  and doesn't need to be serviced by a traditional filesystem.
  The new code will return bad results for py2exe and macOS
  application builds because resource files live in immediate
  subdirectories of the binary instead of next to the source.
  This will be addressed in future commits.
  1. no-check-commit because we must use foo_bar naming

  @martinvonz do you want to pick up this series or do you want me to rebase it on top of `packageutil`? If you leave it up to me, I'm not sure when I'll get around to it. (I'd prefer to focus my time on shoring up PyOxidizer.)
  If you do pick this up, an alternative to this approach would be to vendor `importlib_resources` ( or consider using its code/approach instead of rolling so much of a custom solution. That being said, I feel like I already wrote enough of the code to support the modern resources API and Mercurial would require sufficient changes for things to work in the domain of `bytes` that importing `importlib_resources` doesn't seem worthwhile.
  If you do take this series, something to consider for templates is the implication for users wanting to edit templates. If templates are embedded in the binary, how do users define their own custom versions of the build-in templates? We already have a permissions problem when the provided templates are read-only and the user can't edit them in place. But with PyOxidizer, if templates are embedded in the binary, the user won't even have access to their raw content! We would likely need to supply an `hg debugextracttemplates` command or something to allow the user to obtain a copy of the embedded templates.
