FYI I'm talking with Dino for IronPython and I just emailed some Jython folks
to try to get an opinion on whether they would prefer to have a method to
override, something in _imp that they can implement, or simply implement
marshal.loads() and dumps() such that the bytecode headers stay and the rest of
the file is up to them to deal with.
Their answers will dictate whether the code is a public method or just some
private functions in importlib.
