I think it's fine to recommend using (for example) `>>> from decimal import *` at the command-line prompt when experimenting with a module.  It's a quick way to get yourself into a state where you can easily experiment with that module and its features.

That's not the same as recommending that scripts using the decimal module start with "from decimal import *", of course.
