I was trying to see if I could fiddle with the sys module (say
set an attribute or two) and then 'reset' it to its original pristine
state, the one it was in when i first imported it. I decided to try
reload'ing it, thinking it will skip the module cache and get it from
wherever it got it in the first place, right? This is what occured:
Python 1.0.1 (Mar 5 1994)

>>> import sys
>>> sys.ack = 'foo'
>>> print sys.ack
Traceback (innermost last):
File "<stdin>", line 1
ImportError: No module named sys
What is going on here?
