avoid import short-circuiting

I started the following small project:

because I would like to find out what exactly depends on what at
run-time, using an import hook.

It works quite well for small examples but the main problem is that once
a module is imported
it's added to sys.modules and then it doesn't go through the import hook

I tried to mess around with sys.modules but it might not be a good idea,
and it leads to easy
infinite loops.
Is there a good way to achieve this?
I guess I could do the loop detection myself, but that should not be too
