   Ah!  So after your plea that it's really irrelevant, it turns out that
   you think only one should exist.  Seems like a mistake to me.  As you
   rightly point out, they represent different styles of module design,
   and there's no particular reason we should support only one.

   The solution to subtle errors is bugfixing.  The semantics, at least,
   are quite clear.
