That's basically what you want to do. I'm not 100% up on the import
mechanism (it's a bit hairy) but that should do what you want.

The other option would be to completely recreate the ScriptEngine,
which is where the modules are stored. This is a bit more
time-consuming, but if scripts aren't changing constantly it shouldn't
be too bad.
