In particular, here are the current occurences of io

numpy/lib/__init__.py:from io import *
numpy/lib/tests/test__iotools.py:    from io import BytesIO
numpy/lib/tests/test_format.py:    ...     from io import BytesIO as
numpy/lib/tests/test_format.py:    from io import BytesIO as StringIO
numpy/lib/tests/test_io.py:    from io import BytesIO

And it looks to me like that could easily get confusing since io is also a
Python module since 2.6.
