module namespaces with "Prelude"
Thu, 9 May 2002 08:19:50 -0700
FYI - I've added a :settable toggle to Hugs which controls whether
or not to include the directory of the importing module, e.g.,
turns off the default of adding the directory.
I believe that captures the outcome of this e-mail firestorm; please
correct me if not.
