The one nice feature that Python has is:

This cannot be done at compile time, since the compiler has no real way
of knowing what might be in a package at run time. So it could not
fabricate the necessary locals.
Does it have to be done at compile time? Couldn't the import function
simply iterate over all the members of math and put them in the local
namespace? Or is that not possible somehow?
