Ah, then yeah, it's probably not a good idea to change languages. But
you may end up finding other issues with reload() as well.

I wonder whether this would work...

modules=[]

# instead of 'import mymodule' use:
modules.append(__import__('mymodule')); mymodule=modules[-1]

In theory, this should mean that you load it fresh every time - I
think. If not, manually deleting entries from sys.modules might help,
either with or without the list of modules.
