The more I think about it, the more the bootstrap code in _elementtree.c annoys me. It's the only instance of calling PyRun_String in Modules/ !

It's hackish and causes ugly import problems. If the C code needs stdlib functionality like copy.deepcopy, it should use PyImport_ImportModule like everyone else and not through a PyRun_String hack.

Since we've already decided to do some refactoring, I suggest all trace of the bootstrap is removed from _elementtree.c
