Thank you! Sorry for my poor english!

Here is a example that I want to complete:
>>> import sys, new
>>> context={"name":"david", "sex":"male"}
>>> sys.modules["foo"] = new.module("foo")
>>> import foo
>>> for attr in context:
	setattr(foo, attr, context[attr])

>>> def bar():
        # here is a error
        # import * only allowed at module level
	from foo import *
        print name, sex
>>> bar()
