On further reflection, it occurred to me that it should be possible to
do something along these lines with importlib, *without* necessarily
replacing the builtin import machinery (i.e. having a special instance
of the class that mapped its instance attributes to the appropriate sys
module attributes).

Unfortunately, I doubt I'll have the cycles any time soon to pursue the
idea further :P
