Ever wonder what happens when you try to import a third-party module? Sometimes it's useful to know exactly where the Python interpreter is looking and what happens. I sometimes get curious about this or end up debugging some weird missing import, etc.
This runs the interpreter in verbose mode to trace imports. You can even specify it multiple times to increase the verbosity,
python -v -v will give even more information.
