What might cause my sample program to forget that already imported datetime?

There are quite a few modules that have one "most obvious" entrypoint,
and there's really no better name for either that thing or the module
it lives in. The pprint module has a pprint function, giving the same
phenomenon.

This is yet another reason that "from MODULE import *" is a bad idea.
Instead, just import the module itself, and take whatever you need.
