New submission from Nick Coghlan <>:

Created to record the egregious hack of relying on the test_runpy 
infrastructure in order to test pkgutil.walk_packages.

It gets the job done, but is a really messy way of going about it. Worth 
cleaning up by factoring the support code out to a helper module when there 
isn't a release deadline looming.
