Right now importlib doesn't use what loader.load_module() returns as that was what import.c did. But PEP 302 explicitly states that load_module() is expected to return the module that was loaded. So to save a dict lookup I want to rely on the return value of load_module().

big +1!  I went quite a while before realizing that loader.load_module() was supposed to return the module, due to this specific issue.
