Ok, didn't knew much about importlib, I can work on a patch but have a few questions/suggestions:

1. For importlib, simply referencing the "Using on Windows" guide imo won't be ok - the importlib sources show that the key being used is "Software\\Python\\PythonCore\\{sys_version}\\Modules\\{fullname}", while guide refers to \\PythonPath. Am I missing something here?
2. Considering that importlib code is Python, easy to retrieve without having C sources (which is common case on Windows) - do you think this should go into 3.3 docs? 
3. Do you think the current version of the patch is applicable to Python 2.7?
