Reloading nested modules

Does anyone know of a way to dynamically reload all the imported modules of a
I'm writing a program that I have broken down into quite a few submodules, and
the 'configuration' is done with modules too. As I am developing the app, I
need to test bits and pieces here and there. This is what I currently do:
In each module, I have a section, just after the main imports like so:
# normal imports:
from ooby import squibble,dibble
# reloads for debugging
import ooby # create a reference to ooby so we can reload it
# main module code begins...
The debugging imports of course will be dropped when the program is stable.
I also often find myself doing similar stuff from the command-line, like:
reload(ooby.oojar); reload(ooby.dibble); reload(ooby); ooby.somefunc(.....)
I just wondered if anyone had develped a better 'spell' or even a small script
that uses some clever intorspecton hack, before I go and start trying to
reinvent the wheel...
