Since the problem is often that your program/library has a managable
depth, but it is _located_ very deep in the hierarchy (eg. User.*
modules if you have a long and complicated domain), then how about
allowing A.B/C.hs for module A.B.C? Then you don't need to have a
long, mostly empty dummy hierarchy.
