There is no issue with HFS+ normalization. The kernel "normalizes" filenames to its own variant, Python doesn't have to care about this.

When you write "import h<é normalized to NFC>" or "import h<é normalized to NFD>", Python tries to open "h<é normalized to NFC>.py": then the HFS+ filename does its own normalization (=> "h<é normalized to its variant of NFD>.py").
