Determining which things in 'from package import *' are actually used

P: n/a
I have a fairly large library of Python code, where 'from package import *' is
used rather liberally, and it's not uncommon for more than one of these to
appear in any given module. What I'd like to be able to do is to clean my code
up a bit and turn each of the 'from package import *' statements into 'from
package import thing_1, thing_2, ..., thing_n', where only thing_i's that are
actually _used_ in the module are imported. In this way I hope to make my code a
bit more understandable by future civilizations. :) (it needs all the help it
can get!)

Does anyone know of a package/recipe/whatever that does something like this
automatically, even in limited cases? Ideally it should be accomplished only by
looking at the source, or at most, importing the module.

TIA,

-Pat
