well not all, for example
GLUT: Fatal Error in summon: could not open display: :0.0

So to refine the question:
   how can I list all modules that might be importable on my system,
   without actually importing them all ?

(How about a "pydoc2" that's well thought out, doesn't crash ...
let me ask more knowledgable people, what's a good small help system
as model ?
