Sometimes I just want someone else to choose the actual syntax while I
scowl slightly and accept it :-)

Ok, would anyone be vigorously against ImportQualifiedPost?

(on "FlexibleImports" I'm not very keen on adding an extension flag that we
explicitly intend to mean different things in the future. That's just a way
of getting around the extension flag policy. Either we think it's a good
idea to have flags for every extension, or we don't. Yes I know we've
discussed this in the past and there are grey areas, and we do already
change the meaning of extensions sometimes. But pre-allocating a bucket for
an unknown set of future extensions seems like a step too far to me.)
