The convenience of * comes with a price, of course:  (a) the inability to
statically catch undeclared names without also anlayzing external files,
(b) the hazard of name collisions, and (c) the inability for a reader to
tell where names are coming from without automated analysis.

Is it worth it?  How can we tell?
