Sometimes you can't work well without it. Database accesses are one common
example; so are file accesses across a network.

That being said, anything you only do _once_ shouldn't require threading -- 
and importing stuff certainly qualifies. An additional half-second
slowdown sometime after startup doesn't hurt anybody.
