C Extension and multiple namespaces

I'm looking for a way to create multiple namespaces / dictionaries from
within a Python C extension. I'd like to replicate something like:

  a\__init__.py
  a\b\__init__.py
  a\b\c\__init__.py

Where a\__init__.py import b and b\__init__.py imports c.

Python 2.2.3 (#1, Jul  9 2003, 16:15:35) 
[GCC 3.2] on sunos5
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import a
>>> dir(a)
['__builtins__', '__doc__', '__file__', '__name__', '__path__', 'b']
>>> dir(a.b)
['__builtins__', '__doc__', '__file__', '__name__', '__path__', 'c']
>>> dir(a.b.c)
['__builtins__', '__doc__', '__file__', '__name__', '__path__']

I haven't been able to find any examples or other extension modules that do
anything like this, so it might not even be possible. But any help or
pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks.
