The purpose of something is not only relevant but essential when someone 
asks for the "best" way to do it.

For example, without knowing anything of your purpose, I could simply 
say that writing a module with a series of import statements, one per 
module in the target subdirectory, is the "best" way, and I could easily 
defend that as "best" against all other possible approaches until we 
knew what the real reason for doing this was.

(Your extra detail on the regex thing makes it clear that the above 
approach would not be "best", but I think that just goes to show that 
until we know why you want this, we cannot possibly answer your question
