A couple wild-ass-guess ideas:

    * Perhaps more test___all__ smarts are needed?  You added a "known
      skips" list to regrtest.py.  test___all__ could perhaps avoid
      importing any module that's not supposed to work on the current

    * How about comparing sys.modules.keys() before and after a test and
      then remove any that were added that are Python modules?  (It's not
      safe to remove extension modules, right?)
