[New-bugs-announce] [issue18070] change importlib.util.module_for_loader to unconditionally set attributes

New submission from Brett Cannon:
importlib.util.module_for_loader (as well as set_package and set_loader) only set those attributes either when they are not already set or when the module is new. I realized this is a problem as it means a reload won't work the way one might expect.
I want to at least change module_for_loader since I suspect that is in wider use, but probably all three decorators to unconditionally set their respective attributes so reloads operate as expected. Unfortunately that is backwards-incompatible, albeit for probably a rare case if anyone actually cares.
Anyone see a reason why doing this is a bad idea and it shouldn't be done?
