Error code E0253

Attempt was made to import an unimportable value. This can happen when trying to import a method from a trait.

Erroneous code example:

mod foo {
    pub trait MyTrait {
        fn do_something();

use foo::MyTrait::do_something;
// error: `do_something` is not directly importable

fn main() {}

It's invalid to directly import methods belonging to a trait or concrete type.
