Using srfi-1, etc. without modules works like usual, you don't need
importing anything in that case. The import libs for core units are
hand-written and just map identifiers to themselves (otherwise they
would be renamed). So the answer is: yes.

Note that qualified identifiers ("##sys#...") can be used normally inside
a module and are not implicitly renamed.

I would like not to force using modules. At least for core units, everything
should be usable as it is.
