This surprised me somewhat, and I must have missed any
discussion/rationale. Could you elaborate/point me at the relevant
It seems to me that A.B could be implicit (leaving "module C where"),
from the path. This might help resolve point 3.2 Renaming of
Subtrees, since one could add -I (or equivalent options, or modify a
path in an env var) for commonly used directories.
(Okay, so it would introduce a dependency between the importing source
and the build process. Is that it?)
 ...suggesting a syntax along
import Org.Com.Microsoft.* as Microsoft.*
import Microsoft.J++ as Java
giving a shorthand access to deeply nested libraries.
