I made a mistake and got my PYTHONPATH wrong hence
_bemacs cannot be found.

I guess that in the face of an import that cannot be found
py2app simply ignores it. What would be useful is to have
a message saying the import cannot be found.

I realise that this can lead to false positive messages
but it would be useful to point to errors.
