Make arcpy import faster

From what I've read in various discussions, arcpy need to ping a license server, then after timing out, check if you have a license checked out.

Could we add functionality such that it looks for a checked out license first and not have to wait for the license server check to time out? (slow process).

Debug sessions requiring subsequent exaction are extremely slow right now with the current process.

At this point esri should bite the bullet and just remove the license checks from arcpy in general. You still need the Desktop files to run the modules and the number of customers with Desktop licenses and nothing else has to be in single percentiles by this point, it doesn't seem worth the hassle to shove license checks everywhere for the base functionality.
