I could agree with you if using "from leoGlobals import *" had ever caused
me the slightest ache.  Aside from this startup problem, now completely
solved, it never has.

As suggested in another reply, replacing every reference to x in leoGlobals
by g.x might be considered better style, but this is precisely what I want
to avoid.  It is always perfectly obvious in the code that a reference to a
"bare" function is a reference to a function in leoGlobals.  What could be
clearer?
