I've been looking around for a way to actually rollback a failing module import

AFAIK that's not really possible in Python as of writing this, especially with complicated binary modules.
I think a solution might be to abandon the common Python EAFP idiom, because it assumes graceful failure without such ugly side-effects. However, I'm not sure what the LBYL alternative is in this case. But I think there should be one, possibly loading just some high-level gi module to list available APIs?
