I don't know that this partilarily bad programming, 
but I was interested in doing the following.

def functionname( module, var1, var2 ):
	import module

I would like to be able to pass the module name
as an argument and have the module imported as a result.

For instance... functionname( os, "1", 234)

Thanks for any help.
