I'm sorry, I've realized I didn't explain my needs at all.
I was a little influenced by drupal's definition of modules, which is
completely different from python's.
With module here I meant plug-in or extension: a piece of code written
by someone else that can be easily (and automaticallly) integrated
into my program.
My program must provide the posibility to be extended without editing
its code, just like mozilla's add-ons.
