Do that and use hierarchical modules if there's a bunch of functionality 
you want to pull together for ease of importing. Modules are there almost 
entirely to provide namespaces and that's why there aren't other 
constructs to do it. You don't want an overloading mechanism that isn't 
type classes, either - how else would you decide "most specific"?

Brain damage is but one form of mind damage.
