zip files as nested modules?

Importing modules from zip files was proposed in PEP-273 
Here is how the spec of PEP-273 begins:
Currently, sys.path is a list of directory names as strings. If this
PEP is implemented, an item of sys.path can be a string naming a zip
My interpretation of the above is that, to be importable, a zip file
must be explicitly named in sys.path.
So the mere fact that a zip file lies somewhere in a directory which
is part of the sys.path does not make it importable.
