I didn't save the output from trying to use the broken package load,
unfortunately. I'll try to recreate it if I can. I may easily be
putting the blame in the wrong place, though, since the failure was in
paste.modpython -- it could be mod_python that's using imp in some
egg-unfriendly way. If I can find some time today or in the next
couple of days I'll re-break a namespace package and post the output
from a failed load here.
