it is, but you need to understand how things work before you can use it 
without getting yourself into trouble.  this page might help:

see the "Circular Import" section for a discussion of what's going on 
here, and "Which Way Should I Use" for some guidelines (pay special 
attention to the last item in that list ;-)
