Yeah, this seems like the problem. It imports it, but neither globals
or locals change. It's hard to say exactly what the problem is as I
can't debug what happens in CPython, as no matter what I put into the
local site.py, nothing seems to happen. So I't hard to me to check
what the behaviour *should* be, but it seems clear that this is where
the difference is.
