Some months ago, I have started to implement a brand-new modulefinder,
which is based on importlib.  It has a different API, but the (barely)
documented API functions remain the same or could be made compatible.
The advantage against the current modulefinder is that it finds modules
in zipfiles, for example in zipped eggs.

IMO it is not yet ready for inclusion into Python 3.4, but given the
plans for the first alpha release in August I will hopefully find
time to work on it a little bit more.

If someone wants to read the code, or try it out:
