Actually, what I am looking for is more alone the lines of:

	moduleToImport = "SomeModule" # <- Retrieved as CGI argument
	classToInstantiate = "SomeClass" # <- Retrieved as CGI argument

	import moduleToImport
	someInstance = classToInstantiate()

Of course, the above does not work. But is there any way to achieve what I 
outline here?
