Fast imports for rapid application startup
The module quickimport provides an improved importer for python. If you ever started a Python application from a lame file server (like a CIFS server) you know the problem of long startup times. The quickimport importer uses the pep 302 import hooks to reduce the number of failing stat system calls for each loaded module.
For Python 2.7. May work with earlier versions too.
