A possible solution would be in

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~pauli-virtanen/scipy/pydocweb/revision/386

It seems to be possible to be used in the same way when  iter_modules
is not available.
The usage in ``_lookfor_generate_cache`` in lib/utils.py looks almost
exactly the same
as in the above revision
