-0: I'm vaguely against this being supported because I'd rather not
have to deal with what happens when the guess regarding the filesystem
encoding is wrong. On the other hand, a general encouragement to stick
to ASCII module names is probably functionally equivalent without
imposing a hard restriction.

+1: It'd be nice if Python could import modules regardless of what
folder names people happen to have on their module path.
