Benjamin Peterson's recommendation sounds like the winner (since we need 
to do *something* different in 2.6 anyway).  Forcing the import leads to 
a bunch of import-ordering problems, since the testing tool itself wants 
to emit warnings, and self-test, and then it has to import the module 
_and_ set an attribute on the SUT module...

Thanks for the tip, though.
