What you _really_ want to do is create a duplicate of a module (glob)
but providing it with a replacement for a standard module (os).
The cheeky solution involves using the standard library module rexec.
It was designed for replacing modules in a security sandbox (for
example, replacing the standard 'open' function with one that limits
access to a specific directory) but it will do exactly what you want
The python documentation for this module is a little thin, but there
is deeper documentation on www.python.org.
