Even more special: put a test_doctest in first and the attempt to clean up sys.modules in test_zipimport_support leaves things alone so the _ssl module doesn't break (test_doctest just leaves sys.modules alone and doesn't even try to remove all the modules it implicitly imports).

I'm actually tempted to remove test.support.modules_setup() and modules_cleanup() and delete the calls from the affected tests. Trying to clear out implicitly imported modules is going to create far more problems than it resolves.
