This is probably the most feature-laden 2 month release ever.

This looks good, but I'm not sure the many new features go well with the "2 month release" thing. I hope there are plans for a longer than usual testing period. Your announcement reads to me like it's going to be a regression bug release.

17. Allow multiple selective imports from different modules in a single import statement

I have a bad feeling that that one is going to be a source of a raft of bugs for years to come.

Indeed, I had a bad feeling about it when reading the change log, didn't made sense first time I read it, and had to parse the line 2 times to understand what's up with it.

In the light of pretty much heated arguments following your post I think it should be wise to deffer releasing this feature for a future time, maybe drag it through a DIP?

This should also serve as a lesson to Walter and Andrei on how to handle this kind of changes, now that the community is a bit larger simple changes (at surface) have a bigger ripple effect.
