Though if you are using interactive mode to test library code, you
might have bigger problems on your hands than implicit imports...

This topic came up in a completely unrelated thread in c.l.py wherein
I apologized for an automatic import of the csv module in some
interactive copy-n-paste. Chris asked about it, and I posted the
module I use (which I don't think was original with me) as a
convenience in interactive mode. Then he looked into things and came
up with this patch.
