Wow, this was news to me and I just ran into it in python 2.7. Checked in Python 3 and it's still there:

(py3)->torsten.landschoff@horatio:~$ python3 --version
Python 3.6.0a3+
(py3)->torsten.landschoff@horatio:~$ python3 -W error::sqlalchemy.exc.SAWarning -c "print()"
Invalid -W option ignored: invalid module name: 'sqlalchemy.exc'


I see no easy way to fix this. One way I thought about is to have hooks for importing of modules (called when a module is put into ``sys.modules``, not sure if there is something like this already) and have the warning system trigger on that.

There is no way to raise an exception before it is imported anyway...
