According to https://stackoverflow.com/a/29579072/428751: CPython never unloads its C extension modules.

As for the packet encoders and packet compressors, it would be really tedious to use lazy loading here and those libraries are very small anyway.

So this will do for now.

@maxmylyn: mostly a FYI, you probably won't be able to spot the small decrease in memory usage unless you also take advantage of #1838 to completely turn off some subsystems.
