dynamic class instantiation

I've written some code that will take a class name and create an
instance of the class, but was wondering if this is an appopriate way to
do it. I use imp.find_module and imp.load_module to get the module that
the class resides in. Then I do:
class_name = 'SomeClass'
clazz = module.__dict__[class_name]
instance = clazz() // no arg constructor
This seems to work okay, but I'm wondering if there is some canonical
way of creating an instance of a class from only its fully qualified
name (i.e. 'package.module.Class').
