Ok, I submitted it as a patch (768442 if anyone is interested) :-)
Brett, thanks for the pointer.
Now, one question still remains. Should Lib/test/test_module.py be
updated to check for this new behaviour or not? Even if my patch is never
added to Python, surely the current (imho faulty) behaviour should be
tested for, shouldn't it? I don't mind writing the needed tests, I just
don't want to waste my time doing it if it's not needed =)
