When using this approach, please be a little extra careful:
VBA has this feature, and a bug where it remembers some random/first input of a
symbol as the 'definition' for things that are actually defined elsewhere.
I got stuck with DAte everywhere in one project, because I mis-typed it
once, and since Date is a system function, I couldn't ever get it back,
it always insists on using DAte no matter what I type.
Just some MS-SIlliness to be wary of.
(Not that I expect these kinds of bugs in Python, but you never know.)
