Very picky point, but I'd like to know what others think of this. Should 
I import as above, or should I do this:

import time
time.sleep(60.0)   ???

I think the 'from time import sleep' looks cleaner, because I'm only 
taking what I need (is an import any more expensive than this from?), 
but I also feel like the 'time.sleep' syntax is much more 
self-describing and better to read than just 'sleep'.

So what do you guys think between these two choices?
