You want to freeze them? I'm sure you can do it with the 
frozen code in a dll, but frozen modules need to be listed in a 
table in the executable, so having the code in a dll won't help 
you any.

Maybe you want something like:

I suppose you could play games with "from x import *", but I 
believe you'd regret it. If they are all user-accessible, then 
each should be imported explicitly by the user, or one should 
play the role of gateway to the others.
