In order to have exceptions that have messages like "bad magic number in
module" there would need to be a technically unneeded fullname parameter.
People cool with that? I personally dislike having info passed in just for
error reporting, but in this case import exceptions typically try to clarify
what actually caused the issue by naming the module since you can end up with
deep implicit module chains.
The other stuff related to bytecode paths are just for verbose logging or for
setting path on ImportError, both of which can be worked around.
