The heirarchical module names are always "full paths" to the module.
Aux.B still needs to refer to Aux.C.

This is annoying if you want to move something into a different place,
since it will refer to itself entirely using the full names.

The description of the Heirarchical module standard suggests that they
are open to ideas for improvement :-)
