import is only called from use.

    Excelent point, but only if my module would be a 'traditional' module using the Exporter.

    This is an OO module. No export, no import. (Unless I've misunderstood something fundamental again. ;-)

    Sorry I didn't mention that in my original post.

    Everything went worng, just as foreseen.

      You've probably already figured this out based on earlier answers, but the import() method is invoked regardless of whether you choose to inherit it from the Exporter module or not. In addition, there's no reason it has to actually import anything. In this sense, it's simply a hook you can use for anything you want when your module is invoked with use. Fear not for the sanctity of your OO model.
