One possibility might be to allow mulitple module definitions in the
same file, making it easier to wrap each record in its own module
without running into a Java-like forest of files.

(I've proposed this before, and although I don't remember the specifics,
ISTR the response being mostly negative.)

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
