No, the import statement keeps track of what was imported. It doesn't work.

In [1]: import numpy as np1

In [2]: import numpy as np2

In [3]: id(np1)
Out[3]: 47437984

In [4]: id(np2)
Out[4]: 47437984

You might be able to do this by digging into the import mechanics. Look
at the __import__ builtin and the imp module. But I don't think it's
supported, and not something typically done.
