This isn't really true. If this is the only thing you're worried
about, you can always do the "manual" version of a "from X import Y":
wavread = formats.wavread
wavread.someFunc() # refers to functions in module formats.wavread.
Also, I'm too lazy to check right now, but I wouldn't be suprised
if "mport formats.wavread as wavread" also works even in the circular
