If you have Pydev Extensions, it analyzes your source for undefined
tokens and is able to make the imports for you (but it doesn't remove
the unused imports... especially because this can be very tricky in
Python, where tokens can be imported from one module to another --
different from java, where the only thing you import are actually the
classes, so, in practice, the effectiveness in Python for that feature
is not the same as in Java, still, being able to write the imports for
you is really useful: and ctrl+shift+O
for it to write the imports for the undefined tokens)

Also, basic refactoring is available.

> Besides, an installation howto would be useful for me.
