... and this is one of the great flaws of the base package.
Because of such non-standard extensions, the 'base' package API is
_not_ universally available across all compilers. I strongly believe
that 'base' is a misnomer, and we should consider hiding 'base'
altogether, and creating a 'real-base' package that is (a) compliant
to the language standards, (b) contains no compiler-specific modules
