I'v seen mentionned in some post that there could be performance issues
from moduleX import whatever
as opposed to:
What would be the performance issues?
What happens when names from moduleX are imported using the first former
syntax in some modules of an application and imported using the latter
syntax in other modules of the same application?
It's my understanding that using the "from moduleX import whatever"
syntax in moduleA, all of moduleX code will run and only the name
"whatever" will be made available to moduleA. What are the benefit of
using this syntax then, is it only the fact that you don't have to type
the "moduleX." prefix in moduleA?
