You mean to open modules by parsing import statements in a file?

import sys
import MyClass

And then you could place the cursor over let's say MyClass and press some
key combination to load the py file for the module. Is that what you mean?

This would be cool as an added bonus, but it's the find-file like
functionality that is crucial.
