Well, we already have a delay in detecting new files in importlib as the directory mtime check already adds a delay of the granularity of the mtime value for a directory. So if you manage to mutate a directory, import, write a file, and then import again all within the mtime of a directory, you will miss the new file (which has already triggered sporadic failures in various tests because they were not blowing out importlib's cache). IOW there is already a freshness problem that if we don't have importlib will never get bootstrapped because people will complain about performance too much.
