You really shouldn't have to do this by hand.  I wish dfmt could 
do this for us, so that you develop with all the modules imported 
at the top, then run dfmt and it scopes all the imports and adds 
the selective import of symbols.  I've been thinking about 
implementing a tool to do this myself, will get around to it
