[Haskell-cafe] about import alias

Haskell 98 allows import alias:
     import qualified VeryLongModuleName as C

however it does not allow aliasing for imported names
     import NormalModule (veryLongFunctionName as C)

what is the rational?
IMHO this can be very useful in some cases.

Thanks  Manlio
