I think this behavior will then last forever. The usage of `from scipy
import *` to get numpy symbols can only get "worse" unless such an
import will emit some depreciation warning (this would be possible via
scipy.__all__ list that contains a name to a module that only emits a
warning when imported).
If we don't cut it now, we can never cut it. I'd vote for 0 on cutting.
