Just to comment on the import lock issue when importing from within a function, it is a problem. If an import triggers the launching of a thread which calls these functions that have an import inside of them, deadlock will occur. This has been reported as an issue before so people do it (unfortunately).

Importing within functions is something to be avoided when possible.
