We could have a file s.el which is not an ordinary file of Lisp,
but rather a special stub for 'require' to access.

(require 's) would load magnars.el, then set up the renamings for the
rest of the containing file so that it can say s-foo and that will be
renamed to magnars-foo.

The s.el file can include a precise list of the necessary renamings
for callers to use.  This woud be updated by scanning magnars.el.
