The Programatica project showed that recursive modules *could* be
implemented; if I remember correctly, their module resolution code
was in pure Haskell 98.

However, I'll grant you the incomplete implementation status of Haskell98
as an argument for fusing what would have been mutually recursive modules
(although I suspect that two-level types may be better).  That still isn't
an argument for >>MANY<< records in the same module.
