I understand that there is a workaround. I'm just thinking about the many existing large codebases where re-writing thousands of imports because of this is unlikely to be done, yet having somewhat longer process launch times would be surprising and unwanted.

Anyways I do think it's a very small price to pay for better error messages, and there's a good chance nobody will actually feel the difference, so let's definitely move forward with this.
