Jython/Python Libs

Hi all,
I need to survey what modules are supported in both Jython and Python 
(which is probably nearly the same as knowing which modules have no 
dependencies on C extensions).  What would be the quickest way to establish 
that?  (As in, is there a way to import and test them all automatically and 
report the failures, or has someone already tabulated this somewhere).

Ideally I'd also catch the few cases of modules which don't work correctly 
for language compatibility regions, but I know that can be pretty subtle.

I'm really only interested in the standard library modules -- I'll test any 
extra modules we need case-by-case anyway.

The goal is to clearly establish and document what subset of Python will 
run on either platform.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Anansi Spaceworks
