[Patch] Import loop in site.py under Python 3.3

Stefan H. Holek avatarStefan H. Holek created an issue

Under Python 3.3, site.py can run into an import loop if distribute is on the sys.path more than once (or a second version of distribute is on the sys.path - don't blame me, sys.path can be messy.). This is likely due to changes to the import machinery [1].

To fix this, the `import imp` statement has been moved further down, into the try/except clause, to catch cases when distribute tries to load itself or a sibling.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
