I'm not using Cython so that's out of question. Concerning the injection
how would this work? From the PEP I assume it would have to look like this:

# CODE #
import sys
class VFSModuleLoader:
   def find_module(fullname, path=None):
      return self if VFS.exists( vfsPathFromFullname(fullname) ) else None
   def load_module(fullname):
      sourceCode = VFS.read( vfsPathFromFullname(fullname))
# CODE #

How does ??? work? If I use "eval" I end up with the code inside
VFSModuleLoader.load_modules as context but it should go into the global
context as an own module.

Yours sincerely
