I see. But then, aren't those modules something internal to psyntax's
workings? And if so, shouldn't they be filtered out from the return
value of module-submodules (or not be traversed by the apropos-fold)? As
a user of those procedures, i find the appearance of those modules a bit
confusing (the only use case in client code i can think of is when using
the return value of current-module). Am i missing something?
