That tool-chain is totally breaking my application, so that's going to
take a while to figure out.  It's just generating blank pages at the
moment, I have no idea why, no errors in error_log.

I'm fairly sure that this module is not getting imported by "imp".  I
added logging of any time a module was imported by imp, and it isn't
directly called by that.  However, a module that is imported by imp is
importing these modules and that's where the code is that is failing.
As I said, one line works, the next line doesn't.  That code is within a
module imported with imp.

 If you don't have time to do it right, when will you ever find time to do
 it over?
