[issue9716] The inittab modules cannot be packages

New submission from Kay Hayen <kayhayen at gmx.de>:


I try to include modules with PyImport_AppendInittab or PyImport_ExtendInittab and that works fine. But if these modules are part of a package, i.e. I provide "package_name.module_name" as the name, they never get considered.

Is there any way to add a package with modules below it from C/API? So that an import package_name.module_name from other modules will find it?
