Should we also look at an API change for the initfunc() of PyImport_Inittab
entries?  Currently the function takes a module name, which doesn't jive
with loader.exec_module() taking a module.  I noticed this while adding an
exec_module() to BuiltinImporter.  I suppose the same thing goes
for PyImport_ImportFrozenModuleObject().
