The Python manual has an example snippet of how to "fake" your own
mod = __import__(name)
components = string.split(name, '.')
for comp in components[1:]:
mod = getattr(mod, comp)
__import__ is a builtin function that Python's import statement calls.
The for loop ensures that if you're importing a module from a package
(ie. the "z" in x.y.z) that the "mod" variable will actually hold the
module, and not the package.
