I don't understand what's wrong with this. (Of course, the module
you do the "from XXX import *" with should be designed for this).
This is on of the hallmarks of Python that facilitate rapid
development: When you want to get familiar with an unfamiliar
library module, start up python in a shell, do the
"from XXX import *" thing, and start playing.
Name space pollution is not an issue, because when you write
programs, you don't do "from XXX import *".
