Not on import, but you can do this:
my_module.set_environment("math") # or cmath, or numeric, or whatever
Your my_module will be like this:
# Warning: untested code.
ENVIRON = None # global variables sometimes have their uses
if ENVIRON is None:
raise ValueError("Uninitialised module!")
# or use a custom exception
ENVIRON = __import__(name)
Does this help?
