I don't think that's the right way forward.

It's much easier to either remove the need to import those
extra modules or defer their import to actual use within
a function.

Both collections and functools are used in two distinct places.
The re module use could also be deferred to actual use.

It would be worthwhile adding a note to the top of the module
mentioning the fact that the module is loaded early on by Python
and to warn about use of non-builtin module imports.
