Yesterday I changed the error to an ImportError so it makes more sense. I think we need to change the 
documentation so this is more clear, but automatically turning off modules is a bad idea, because you end 
up with different pypy based on the environment. An import error during translation could trigger a more 
complete error message talking about --withoutmod also.
