Jython will only load JAR files that exist explicitly on sys.path, not
JAR files in directories on sys.path. Loading JARs in directories on
sys.path would make embedding Jython much more practical.

It would be easier for some situations, but then the import system would 
have to do more work to scan a directory for zip files. This would hurt 
import's initial startup time

Plain .zip file support w/ zipimporter also works this way, as does 
Java's CLASSPATH -- as it's more efficient
