I have a quick-and-dirty python script that does exactly this. It cannot handle the "new" Zope import style which is import somepackage.somesubpackage from somepackage import otherpackage import somepackage.otherpackage.othersubpackage x = somepackage.somepackage.somevar y = otherpackage.othersubpackage.othervar and which I don't personally use. (If I wanted verbosity, I know where to find Java).
