Ok, here is a draft patch for the new importlib.
Several issues with this patch:
- introduces a pure Python function (_lock_unlock_module) on the fast import path
- synchronization issues due to interruptibility of pure Python code (see _ModuleLock.acquire)
- afterfork fix-up necessary
- relies on _thread.RLock for bootstrapping reasons
- module locks are immortal
