A rigorous definition is easy; I can't promise it would always meet
The "current module" is given by the current formula (PyEval_GetGlobals(),
etc.) except when loading an extension module, in which case the current
module is the one most recently created.
I'm not sure, but this might be simplifiable to:
the "current module" is the one most recently created.
