The one-liner is "good enough", but...

The use case is indeed loading a module from an arbitrary file without having to worry about sys.path, etc.  For that load_source is intuitive.  The one-liner is an adequate substitute, but feels like a step backward for this particular use case.  That is, load_source is a *convenience* function, from my POV :)

I did not use the 'file' argument.  If I were dealing with an already open file it would seem more natural to use imp.load_module.
