Sorry, if I said this for the rc file. "import" is a python statement
which can be used in the pythonfile.

You did. Not '\' followed by 'n' but the character '\n' is written.
That's the character used to start a new line. This is a non-printable

So, this character is expected while this statement won't work in the rc
