updated packaging as a package, rather than modules

 A module that helps encapsulate option and configuration data using a
-multi-layer stacking model.
+multi-layer stacking (a.k.a. nested context) model.
 
 Classes, for example, set default values for all
 instances. Instances can set new values. If an instance doesn't set a value, the
 
 Python's ``*args`` variable-number of arguments and ``**kwargs`` keyword
 arguments are sometimes called "magic" arguments. ``options`` takes this up
-a notch, allowing arguments to be interpreted on the fly. This is useful, for instance,
+a notch, allowing setters much like Python's ``property`` function or ``@property``
+decorator, in turn allowing arguments to be interpreted on the fly. This is useful, for instance,
 to provide relative rather than just absolute values. As an example, say that
 we added this code after
 ``Shape.options``

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
