>(python -c "import pkg_resources") takes half a second on my netbook.
I find that weird, to say the least. On my desktop just now, with a
sys.path 79 entries long (including 41 .eggs), it's a "blink and you
missed it" operation. I'm curious what the difference might be.
(Running timeit -s 'import pkg_resources' 'reload(pkg_resources)'
gives a timing result of 61.9 milliseconds for me.)
