Keyword arguments for compile() and __import__(), as
discussed at PyCon. There is a slight speed difference
on my development system: __import__ is ~1% slower,
compile() is ~1.5% faster. I blame both on caches,
alignment and what not, so I bet they're totally
different for everyone. I'd say the advantage of
managing the growing set of arguments outweighs the
speed impact (if any.)

These look good to me.  Thanks Thomas. I had started a patch
for import.  BTW I think the new __import__ needs to be
documented in libfuncs.txt or somewhere like that.  If you
don't get to it, I'll find my change and update the docs.

Is anybody still working on this?

__import__ already accepted kwargs, committed the compile() part in rev. 54358.
