The documentation states that __spec__ is None in–and only in–__main__. That this happens also for PEP 420 implicit namespace packages appears to be the cause of the error.

Hmm. If I recall correctly, we set __spec__ for namespace packages...  What's a quick way to consistently reproduce the ImportError?
