Yep, you're right. I always forget about the "as" option.

My mistake again. The names I chose were for illustrative and
explicative purposes only; nothing else was (meant to be) implied.
For the record, then, it would look like this:
import optionon as optionmodule
import optionoff as optionmodule
x = optionmodule.Foo( )
(assuming we can live with an Initialcaps class name).
It also now strikes me that a package might be appropriate here: Let
__init__.py sort things out and set up the package's namespace
accordingly; then the rest of the program would just use the package
- __init__.py has to have access to the option variable (solutions
abound; good solutions are less plentiful and vary over time and
- given (a) my recent track record for getting the details correct
and (b) my lack of experience with the package system, I humbly
leave the rest of such a solution to the interested reader.
