Of course nothing.

Gary's original problem has nothing to do with syntax; he used the 
correct syntax (from name1 import name2) but supplied an incorrect value 
(true_division, IIRC) for name2.

In my whimsical advertisement for introspection, IronPython accepted the 
correct syntax (import name1). The difference between my whimsy outcome 
and Gary's is most likely because I've got the CPython Lib on my 
sys.path for IronPython, and he hasn't:
