I doubt I will get to that as I suspect most people would rather I
spent my time on getting the Hg conversion to happen or trying to help
ramp up 3to2. So importlib will more than likely stay just a standard
library package for 3.2 (unfortunately as that means making this work
requires changes in two places, although prototyping in importlib
should be the easiest thing to get working).
