Please don't. It's much better to put things into modules, and import
them when needed.

Why that difficult? What's wrong with just doing "from htmlgenerator

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
