Ok, I've implemented this in Cython for now, to finally move the PEP-489
support forward. The somewhat annoying drawback is that module reloading
previously *seemed* to work, simply because it didn't actually do anything.
Now, people will get an exception in cases that previously worked silently.
An exception would probably have been better from the beginning, because it
clearly tells people that what they are trying is not supported. Now it's a
bit of a breaking change. I'll see what it gives.

Thanks for your feedback on this.
