wiki: CodeReviewComments change: Discourage duplicate imports with different names #29289

I've seen it happen a couple of times (especially in Kubernetes related projects with lots of naming collisions) that the same packages have been imported multiple times with different aliases. My gut feeling was, that golint should warn me about this, so I can take the appropriate steps without having to manually check for that condition.

Turns out there was a proposed PR to do that, but it's been closed because it was out of scope. The CodeReviewComments indeed do not contain a mention of this condition. Should we add it?

I feel like a simple "Do not import the same package twice under a different alias." or even a softer "Avoid importing the same package under a different alias." would be reasonable and thus pulling such a change to golint in scope.
