....... well preppy.getModule does exactly that gets a module with the
name specified. If you have two identical names then preppy can't have
them both in memory at once. That's why we see the preppy compile
repeatedly recompile things that have identical names. The modules are
stored by filename, but imported after sys.path adjustment using
__import__ so it repeatedly loads the different modules.
