System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 18); backlink

Inline strong start-string without end-string.

TODO: - check what's mpath all about.

TODO later: - python 3.1 support. preliminary work done - url import of zipped modules - support of other urls, like ssh, svn, hg, bzr, cvs etc. - reload c extensions. well, they don't allways reload in local import either, but my module does reload locally, so why not remotely? introspection will help. - swithch the usage of debug with some logging, and do some cleanup of the calls.
