PEP 690: Lazy imports in Python! Sounds like it will eliminate any reason to put import statements halfway through a file. Although it will be less explicitly obvious when something is imported at runtime, I think that might be a minor issue compared to the stylistic and performance benefit. https://peps.python.org/pep-0690/ "This PEP proposes a feature to transparently defer the execution of imported modules until the moment when an imported object is used."
