Yes, but maybe not in the way you think. A new copy of the module will
be loaded and bound to the name 'eli'. But the names x, y and
printValues, which are bound to values in the old copy of the module,
will not change.

So if, after all your above manipulations, you
import eli

you will see that x, y and printValues have the same values as before,
but eli.x and eli.y will be restored to the original values.
