Could you give me a rough pointer to this ? Nothing popped up when I grepped 
my archives. Generally I am of the opinion that explicit imports decreases 
cost of entry because potential developers don't have to search through 
multiple packages to find the classes. This makes it far easier for them to 
adapt and add code in long run. I am kinda curious what type of arguement 
could be made for globbed imports (other than laziness).
