We all know that doing:

is bad because it obliterates the 'pkg' namespace.
The strongest reason for not doing this is that it pollutes the current namespace, not that it obliterates the 'pkg' namespace.
So why not allow something like:
--> import pkg.*
How would that be different from
--> import pkg
If you want convenience for interactive work, you can always:
--> import pkg --> from pkg import *
and then have the best (and worst!) of both techniques.
