So you aren't concerned that anyone will be able to find a leftover reference
to the original import that might have been stored in the locals of a function 
or method somewhere?  Or that they'll simply be able to override yours with
a new one that basically restores the original functionality?  Your comment
about "under any circumstances" sounded extreme, but maybe you aren't quite
so concerned about such things as you sounded. :-)
