Attached is a patch to add imp.get_codingspec(); a function that returns
the encoding of a source file.

The motivation is to remove the import of the re module in linecache to
speed up interpreter startup.

It should be noted the original patch by Christian had a check for bad
tokenizing. Turns out that if you have that in several tests fail,
including test_modulefinder. This might mean there is a deeper problem
in the parser.

We don't need this. We have tokenize.detect_encoding().
