> Why do you call imp.load_module() here rather than __import__ ?
__import__ goes searching in sys.path for the named module. In
this case that's unnecessary (since we already know where the
files are), a little dangerous (since it risks loading other
modules of the same names earlier in the path), and possibly
ineffective (since the directory containing the test modules might
not be on the path at all).
