The suggested changes sound hard to understand and to implement
consistently in all compilers.  I lean towards leaving the spec as it

IIRC, the current Hugs semantics is a complex balancing act intended
to achieve backward compatability and implement module paths at the
same time.  I'd prefer to see everyone switch over to the new way so
that we can drop old features.
