Topic: re-exports in aliasing

Looks like something in auto-import now doesn't consider aliases

One doesn't need long type hints if the types themselves are long enough :-)

@Kirill Bulatov could this be duplicate detection?

When I tried to tackle this half a year ago, I've discovered that we don't store and expose anything related to type alias info: no relation to real types, visibility, etc.
So there's simply nothing in the hints logic trying to deal with aliases due to this reason.

That's one of those things that I'd love to fix but have no idea where to start with.

Ah, right, that's not a regression, that's a per-existing behavior. It's just that I didnt touch syntax for a long time
