here is what I am doing now,

egrep 'from|import' *.py | wc -l which is giving me that. But this does not
give me the number of times the particular module gets called. I was
thinking of adding a logging feature to all of my modules so every time
they get called it will be written to a log file with corresponding host
and username. Is there an easy way to do that?
