I have always believed in keeping my namespace squeaky clean so i
never have this problem. Modules like Tkinter (where you yourself have
supported the global import!) i always import as "tk". I think this IS
more a housekeeping issue than a "nail on patch" issue.

PS: However pay attention because i have some interesting ideas about
"dir culling" in my next post to this thread.
