[New-bugs-announce] [issue13306] Add diagnostic tools to importlib?

New submission from Nick Coghlan <ncoghlan at gmail.com>:

In discussing the module aliasing PEP on python-ideas, it occurred to me that we could potentially add some useful "sanity check" utilities to an "importlib.diagnostics" subpackage. For example:

- scan sys.path looking for entries that are inside packages
- scan sys.modules looking for entries with duplicate __file__ attributes
- scan for shadowed modules (i.e. like find module, but don't stop when we get a hit, and report *all* modules found)
