Most of Python features are rather natural and/or intuitive so it's easy  
to express your idea of a program in Python code. BUT in this particular  
case, __import__ behaviour is NOT intuitive nor natural nor practical  
nor... so it's quite reasonable you fall in the trap :)

(it happens to me too: every time I post some untested code, it has a bug!)
