Unfortunately, it's somewhat common for example code in various places
to show the above usage (where somebody did a "from <whatever> import
*). IIRC there used to be examples like that even in the official
docs, but I haven't seen any there in a while.
But examples that look like that are still pretty easy to stumble
across using Google.
I'm guessing he copied the code from a "tutorial" example like this:
Grant Edwards grant.b.edwards Yow! hubub, hubub, HUBUB,
at hubub, hubub, hubub, HUBUB,
gmail.com hubub, hubub, hubub.
