isort can re-order/check imports according to a predefined ruleset.
It looks like it doesnt support pywikibot's complex code 'correctly', but we may be able to develop a usable ruleset with some files excluded, in which case we can enable flake8-isort, and we can use that as the basis of documentation.
It might be necessary to improve isort to generate imports in the desired pep8 ordering.
And it may be beneficial to improve isort to better match our stylistic choices, however minor changes of our style would be acceptable when flake8-isort is enabled to ensure that the result style becomes a concrete enforced coding style.
