I ported the Python interpreter to Genode back in 2010 and omitted any
module support at the time. My line of thinking was, if someone wants to
use Python on Genode, this lack will get noticed. Congratulations you
are the first one! So, basically it should not be that hard to enable
module support. One has to look at the "import" side of Python, which
should somehow provide the "to be interpreted" code to the interpreter,
while also handling the C-code side of some modules. Since our resources
are very limited, I invite you to fill in this gap and will gladly
answer questions if you chose to proceed in this direction.
