Ok, thanks for the reply. Actually the thing that bothered me was the AttributeError exception. I would probably not have opened a ticket should find_spec have raised a ModuleNotFoundError (in line with import_module).

Would you consider catching the AttributeError (which means detecting if parent_name relates to a package) to raise a ModuleNotFoundError instead more appropriate?
