Yes, I tend to agree, but I also think that their is a significant
difference between selecting from the exported set, or selecting from
all definitions of a module, thereby violating the module barrier.
this kind of thing should be possible, but it should also be visually

I.e., I'd say that `:select' only looks into the set of exported
definitions, and `:select-internal' looks into the module itself.
