This is a great start, Nick. Having a solid sys.implementation would
(for one) help with the import machinery, as your list suggests. I'm
planning on reviewing that old thread over the next few days.  In
the meantime, any additional thoughts by anyone on what would go into
sys.implementation would be very helpful.

ultimately this topic should go into a PEP, right?
