If I read this right (and please verify that I am understanding this 
correctly as well), that import_module doesn't/wouldn't support importing 
packages that just use the stock Python import mechanism.  It could be 
possible to call import_module in the __init__.py and in all the submodules 
to refer to any modules in the package, but that is left to the programmer.

Otherwise, you could import packages normally, just not supporting reloading.
