redundant imports

hi everybody.

suppose that code-1.py imports code-2.py and code-3.py (because it uses 
names from both), and that code-2.py imports code-3.py.

if python were c, code-1.c should only *include* code-2.c, because the 
latter in turns includes code-3.c.

inclusion of modules in c is a purely preprocessing textual matter 
(compilation is deferred to after the fact), i guess, so that such 
things are possible. import of modules in python is a different beast, 
so the "redundancy" is (i think) necessary.

any comment/suggestion/idea?

bye
