That's true, but to be honest I don't care. Importing in '*' form
isn't good practice because it hides dependency structure. That's
not important in small projects, but once you get up to hundreds 
of packages and thousands of classes it can be a very big deal: 
try refactoring a significant chunk of code when you can't tell 
at a glance what depends on what.
