Passing the target to the finders isn't just for the sake of any implicit "check_target" test, though that was the original motivator.  It also allows the finder to decide between multiple loaders based on other criteria related to the target (but not necessarily the loader).  I think it was a good addition to the API regardless.

Agreed.  Furthermore, such a test is worthwhile outside the context of PEP 451.  I'm tempted to say we're already covered with existing tests, but reload is goofy enough that an explicit test is worth it.

So very true. :)
