A bunch of code in Python/import.c exists purely for the imp module, but a large chunk of it does not need to be implemented in C but instead can be implemented in Python code.

Once importlib is bootstrapped in then an attempt to scale back the C code should be done by re-implementing parts of imp in pure Python (either in some _imp module or directly in _importlib itself).
