New submission from Brett Cannon <brett at python.org>:

Because I don't have access to Windows, importlib doesn't check the Windows registry for paths to search (see the use of _PyWin_FindRegisteredModule() in Python/import.c and its definition in PC/import_nt.c).

I am considering this a release blocker as once importlib is bootstrapped in this will be a regression that Windows users may not be happy with.
