This may indeed be better (although I am generally lazy, and just  
import * them).  I would certainly be willing to make the effort not  
to be lazy if there was a standard convention.  Are there standard  
names for importing these packages?  I have seen quite a few  
different conventions in various peoples code.  E..g, why not import  
scipy as sp (instead of S)?  From the Numeric days, people often  
import NumPy (et al.) as N, matplotlib as mpl, etc.
