I believe there was a custom __import__ floating around at one time that
allowed imports from zipfiles (part of some sort of freeze tool that Fredrik
Lundh wrote, perhaps?).  If that code can be located, it would probably
serve as a useful template for importing code from other structured files.
Sorry, my memory is foggy on the details.
