hmm, unused imports?  that might be a bit too much, no?  i mean, i'd  
go ahead and remove any import statements i'm not using anymore in my  
packages, and that should be okay.  imho, the only trouble are  
interface packages, otherwise people shouldn't import package a from  
package b anyway, but import it from a directly.

so, how about this?  deprecating imports in interface packages, which  
are not used in plone core, is okay as well as removing unused import  
from any other package?  that's talking 4.0, of course...  hmm, or  
maybe this could be a 3.2 PLIP, too, so we can deprecate things  
earlier.  i mean, this policy shouldn't break anything provided all  
tests are passing.  thoughts?
