Is it important in your use case to magically stick them in the same
place as the standard locations? I remember a few people mentioning that
they have their own "compat" (or "compat23", ...) modules kicking
around. It might be nice to have a collective "compat" or "backported"
package out there, then users could explicitly:
from compat import tempfile
Dunno if that matches up with what you wanted to do.
An import hook that does the magic?
