Yep. It's a known problem. This is a reason why I asked for
imports to have a pragma once behavior (There will be an implicit
include guard. A qbk file will only be included once per scope).
The same should be true for imports. I'm working on this. The first
step is to give templates (and macros) proper scoping. This is the
backward compatibility breaking issue I raised sometime ago.
