Here are the system calls when importing a single pure Python module:

stat("/home/antoine/py3k/py3k/Lib/copyreg", 0x7fff1ed1f740) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/home/antoine/py3k/py3k/Lib/copyreg.cpython-32m.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/home/antoine/py3k/py3k/Lib/copyregmodule.cpython-32m.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/home/antoine/py3k/py3k/Lib/copyreg.abi3.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/home/antoine/py3k/py3k/Lib/copyregmodule.abi3.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/home/antoine/py3k/py3k/Lib/copyreg.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/home/antoine/py3k/py3k/Lib/copyregmodule.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/home/antoine/py3k/py3k/Lib/copyreg.py", O_RDONLY) = 5
fstat(5, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=6633, ...}) = 0
open("/home/antoine/py3k/py3k/Lib/__pycache__/copyreg.cpython-32.pyc", O_RDONLY) = 6
fstat(6, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=5595, ...}) = 0
mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x7f28e6381000
read(6, "l\f\r\n\0\24\212Hc\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\f\0\0\0@\0\0\0s\307\0"..., 4096) = 4096
fstat(6, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=5595, ...}) = 0


This is per possible directory, which means that it can be repeated for each dir on sys.path:

stat("readline", 0x7fff1ed28760)        = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Something has gone out of control here. Why do we need to check so many alternative locations?
