Returning another kind of module can be dangerous here, because extension modules are handled specially (see _PyImport_FixupExtensionObject),
and it's not obvious what this does to normal modules.

But I agree that _imp.load_dynamic() could be extended to plain modules.
A bit like class/type unification.
