It looks like Issue 1644818 is the one for built-in _packages_.

I might wind back the frozen module stuff and go back to just builtins and sys.path searching. The two problems were the existing frozen packages that print stuff out for the test suite, and the lack of search “paths” for frozen submodules. I feel that these might be solved without too much effort, so if people want this feature or have suggestions, I am happy to revisit this.

For the record, I think walk_packages() would import every _package_ (not non-packages), in order to be able to properly find their submodules. Also, “pydoc -k” would have to import every module to be able to search its defined classes, functions, doc strings, etc.
