The finding/loading code in import.c is purely because of the imp module's public API (e.g. imp.find_module()). I have been waiting to find out if importlib would get bootstrapped before making the current module _imp and then creating an which handles most of the high-level stuff (e.g. containing find_module() and have it use importlib). That would let all of that C code go away since I already tie into the low-level C API for C-level import function calls.
