[docs] [issue22122] turtle module examples should all begin "from turtle import *"

New submission from Mark Summerfield:

The turtle module is aimed primarily at young beginners to Python. Making them type turtle.this and turtle.that all over the place is tedious and unhelpful.

At the start of the turtle docs there's a nice example that begins
from turtle import *
and the following code is all the better for it.

But none of the other examples do this. I realise that this would make the module's docs inconsistent, but given the target audience and given that we surely want to lower the barrier to entry, it would be a reasonable concession to make?
