This is the correct way of doing things

Another solution could be, but don't know if it's safe enough
>     from my_friends_module import *
>     # and always as the last import do my own
>     from scipy import array

No because when you'll want to use array, which array is it really ?
What is more, there can be border effects in your friend's module, there
shouldn't be, but how to be sure ?
