Instead of basically forcing

from xlsxwriter.workbook import Workbook
wb = Workbook('myfile.xlsx')

allow something like

import xlsxwriter
wb = xlsxwriter.Workbook('myfile.xlsx')

The main point is not to be shorter (though that's nice), but rather more intuitive. Besides Workbook, I think it would also be good to expose a version constant (akin to xlwt.__VERSION__. Other than that, I'd say best to keep the top-level namespace uncluttered.
