I find the following sentences, from import.rst, section "Finders and loaders", misleading: "Python includes a number of default finders and importers. One knows how to locate frozen modules, and another knows how to locate built-in modules." in that one may think frozen comes before built-in, while the converse is true.

Attached is a patch with a hopefully clearer version. While at it, the patch also turns into links the references to PEPs in the introduction.
