New submission from Martin v. Löwis <martin at v.loewis.de>:
import cStringIO as StringIO
gets rewritten to
import io as StringIO
Unfortunately, that code fails to work: the first import succeeds,
actually binding StringIO; the name io is unbound and gives NameError.
Apparently, the fixer choses to replace all occurrences of StringIO with
io; it should extend this replacement to "as" clauses.
My work-around is to import as _StringIO in both cases, and then refer
to the module as _StringIO.
