Yes: create your own module on-the-fly, using the recipe posted earlier by
If there are many functions, try enumerating them all:
from types import ModuleType as module
plotModule = module('plot')
for key,value in globals().items():
if key[:2] != '__':
setattr(plotModule, key, value)
sys.modules['plot'] = plotModule
