One word of advice: a quick scan of the sources showed me several unqualified
imports of the type
I think it would be a good idea to ban these altogether, in light of (as of

I made that change in ipython a while back (import genutils -> from IPython
import genutils) to future-proof myself and avoid possible clashes with the
stdlib at some point.
