How to handle '-' in the 'from' part in a "from import" statement?

Those are likely not meant to be imported directly.

Typically, you have a "setup" step which installs (in some way)
a "distribution". This step usually ensures that you can use
"normal" Python import syntax to access all associated packages.

The "setup" step is typically performed with
"python setup.py develop" or "python setup.py install" --
with the "distribution" providing the "setup.py".
