Wow, I hadn't seen that change, and I don't remember commenting on this 
aspect of the summary... It was a bit of both I guess, and Wiktor's idea 
certainly got me thinking. As I recall it, we were already discussing 
the problems with the previous zipimport patch. There was _lots_ of 
discussion going on and I don't feel like wading through all that 
again... Anyway: thank you Wiktor, for your contribution to the import 
discussions ;-)
