(1) Sourceforge is a great place to request feature enhancements.
Suggestions made on this mailing list is likely to be forgotten
sooner or later.
(2) Can you explain WHY you would want this feature? Is there some
use case? I would prefer NOT to have this, because right now
if I'm reading code and it uses "package_name.someFunction()"
I can scan upward for "package_name" to find out what it's
using. With command line imports, I couldn't do that. So unless
you've got a good reason for it, I personally wouldn't want
