Correction, it's still possible to shadow the library.  At least in 2.5.  Maybe
after 2.7 it won't.  But it doesn't make anything worse.

A question that may be off topic here but is somewhat related.

How can I tell the difference when running a script with/without:

    from __future__ import absolute_import

It doesn't seem to make any difference on my computer.
