Attached is a short test file to demonstrate this.  It assumes the 
standard win32 layout, but shouldn't be hard to modify.  It does work in 
Python 3.2, but the else: clause in 3.3's imp.load_module function 
raises an ImportError.  I think the fix is to add an elif C_EXTENSION: 
clause that loads the .so / .pyd.

I've already rewritten my code to use importlib when running in Python 3.3.
