Enforcing Python imports’ order with isort, Makefiles, and Vim

I finally integrated isort into my toolbox. I think that the job of changing code files belongs to the editor (or an IDE), so I made Vim run isort automatically, while the import order enforcement in a project is done via Makefile (which can be run the same way by developers and the CI/CD pipeline).
