This note is simply a reminder that Antoine's 'from __main__ import *' 
solution fails in python3.  Also, resolution of this issue probably 
could incorporate Issue1397474.

>>> import timeit
>>> timeit.timeit('None','from __main__ import *')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.0/", line 227, in timeit
    return Timer(stmt, setup, timer).timeit(number)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.0/", line 135, in __init__
    code = compile(src, dummy_src_name, "exec")
  File "<timeit-src>", line 2
SyntaxError: import * only allowed at module level
