It would be possible - I haven't implemented it mainly because
'from x import *' is increasingly considered uncouth in python-land
and because it potentially fairly expensive.

Yes - I believe that project is on ice though. That is a somewhat
different approach that tries to make Python a bone fide .NET language
(compiled to IL, etc.). I think that further work on an approach like
that would still be interesting - but it would be an awful lot of work
