I'm on board with the moving of PType, PTypeFamily, and PTableType classes
to the base package (although it seems a shame because the package name
that they're in already got changed once). 

However, I'm less sure about moving Converter and OutputHandler, as I don't 
really see these as core (external) abstractions. It kind of feels like moving those
will just clutter up the base package.
