You may want to look into PyLint:

Or PyChecker:

I use PyLint through PyDev/Eclipse, and it's a godsend ...

Subject: [Zope3-Users] Utility for removing unneeded import statements

During development and especially refactoring, I'm often confronted with
cleaning up import statements.

Missing imports are reported by Python, however, unneeded imports are
not. I don't know if unneded imports are a performance issue,
nevertheless it probably makes sense to clean them up from time to time.

Therefore I wonder if there's some tool that can automatically check if
an import is needed or not. Probably this is easy to write, but perhaps
somebody has already done so?

What would be nice, would also be a tool that crawls through a python
package and also checks any missing imports and reports all of them at
once. When I refactor code, I often have to restart zope3 over and over,
only due to missing import statements.
