I have got something wrong here: To use, say Text.Html or 
Text.PrettyPrint.HughesPJ, it is not necessary to use -package text on 
the command line? So module Pretty is in the package text and Text.Html 
is part of another package, maybe package base? So there is no need at 
all for the -package directive in my case?
