in thread USE or Require?

Okay, that's a different question and worth more thought.

I don't have a problem importing things into my namespace for three reasons:

I expect someone maintaining my code to be able to find the original location of functions I've imported. I try not to make it hard on that person, but I don't believe in writing un-idiomatic code because it's perceptually "self-documenting". Part of maintainability is readability and duplicate code hurts that.
