Actually, I misspoke on this; it seems that the C API zipimport uses to 
create the module will actually use the existing module object if 
possible.  So, with the reload() fixes I've already committed, it should be 
possible to use PEAK lazy modules with zipimport and py2exe.

This means Python 2.3.5, and the next beta of Python 2.4.  I don't know 
when if 2.3.5 is planned, but 2.4b1 is scheduled for mid-October.
