| :browse Some.Long.Module.Name
| but not
| :browse N
| which would be really nice :P
| if this could make its way into 5.04.1, that would be wonderful

It turns out that the impl isn't structured
with a separate modulename->modulename mapping so it would
not be simple to implement.  For example, what if two modules
whose top level scopes you have open use the same abbreviation
for a different module.  Yes, we could arrange to emit an ambiguous-ref
message, but it's all work. =20

So I'm not enthusiastic, I'm afraid.
