That's anything but self-explanatory, since it gives no hint that Foo and bar will be imported under some name other than Foo and bar.
Besides, why is "import x as _x" so special to require special syntax? Out of the infinite number of names that x could be imported as (import x as y etc) what's so special about _x that it deserves a short-cut?
