The documentation of how imports actually work isn't that easy to find?

Guido's package essay on python.org and PEP 302 seem to cover the topic pretty 
well between them, but neither of them is part of the normal documentation. 
The situation shares some unfortunate similarities with that of the new-style 
class documentation - it's documented, just not in the places you might 
initially expect :(
