Thanks for the very interesting commentary... it's great to learn

Actually, for whatever reason, "os" and "os.path" are two distinctly
*separate* python modules. So by doing:
from os.path import *
I'm just following the standard:
from module import *
I could have been (and often am in other python programs) more
precise by specifying *exactly* which functions I was importing from
'os.path'... but I wasn't 100% sure which ones I would need and
didn't really take the time to button everything down tightly.
A curiousity would be to see if there is any difference at all in
timing if I did 'from os.path import x,y,z' versus
"from os.path import *" Something to test someday...

Yes, it *was* interesting to see how similar... yet at the same
time how different we think.
