I don't see how you possibly can without re-entering beta.  Mucking with the
import machinery *at all* does not seem prudent in the last RC. ;)

FWIW, I recall this being discussed at the time of the PEPs and we decided not
to narrow the search patterns down.  I'd have to go through my archives for
the details, but I think it would be better to officially deprecate the
'module' form so that they can be removed in a future version.
