'Dllimporter' is a package to facilitate the import of shared libraries
(aka dlls or extension modules) for Python applications
running from a zip archive or an executable (a frozen application).

The standard Python import mechanism cannot import extension modules
being part of a zip archived or frozen package. 'Dllimporter' overcomes
this restriction.

The package provides a class 'dllimporter' the instances of which implement
Pythons 'importer' protocol (see PEP-0302). These instances are
designed to be used as importers on Pythons 'sys.meta_path' (again
see PEP-0302, for details).
