I didn't know that, did it change recently. Are e.g. path, os, set,
class, regex now being imported?

I _personally_ prefer to manually import testing whenever I need it. I
actually prefer to import most non-basic stuff explicitly - especially
when the rules end up in the "global namespace", such as unit-test.

Perhaps it is a bit unintuitive that e.g. importing the testing module
makes "unqualified" rules available, i.e. "unit-test" instead of
