And then I played with mxDateTime and I see what you're
talking about. Aargh. You've run into a bug in Installer,
(Windows case preserving case insensitive file names again),
but after that you'll run into a perversion in mxDateTime (the
fact the mxDateTime is both the name of a package and the
name of a module, so the "from mxDateTime import *"
succeeds even when it fails.) (Actually he does this with
DateTime, too, but that one works).
All these "import *"s also include all the test code. I'm
suprised that dependency tracking isn't fooled by LazyModule,
considering what it does to "dir()".
