I'm thinking of:

* pkgutil
* py_compile
* compileall
* modulefinder
* freeze

Should make sure they are (a) doing the right/best thing in the face of importlib/PEP 302/PEP 420/PEP 451, and (b) if they should be integrated into importlib somehow in a non-compatible fashion for future growth and let the old versions slowly wither away.

I'm leaving out runpy as it's not directly import-related, just import-reliant, and zipimport because I don't want to touch its code. =)

Just a gentle reminder as it refers to zipimport and a patch was committed just a few days ago.

No need to keep this issue open as cleaning this stuff up will just come over time or never happen. :)
