Depending on what you're doing, the simplest way to model Aspects in UML is 
probably by a "generalization" (i.e. inheritance) relationship between 
packages.  This corresponds pretty well to TransWarp module inheritance.

It should also work with tools like PyReverse which convert existing Python 
modules into XMI files; note that you'll have to add the module inheritance 
relationships to the resulting diagrams by hand, however.
