Hi all,

I've added a feature request ticket to the GHC trac:


for qualified module exports. In a nutshell this would allow the
following 'qualified module' export eg:

   module MyModule
       ( qualified module T
   import qualified Data.Text as T

so that any module which imports MyModule has access to the symbols
of Data.Text under the quaified module name T.

This feature actually looks like something which I'm capable of
undertaking so if nobody thinks this is a really bad idea, I'll
have a crack at this.
