Currently we are freezing the modules that are imported during startup.  However, if someone uses "python -m module" then the runtime imports the runpy module and uses it.  Given that this case is quite common, runpy and its dependencies should be frozen.

I noticed that the types module is only used for ModuleType. PR GH-30028 gets rid of 205 kB object code:
