I haven't looked at this strawman yet but I looked a bit at Bryan's
and I read Glyn's comments. I have a very naive question: why do we
need separate runtime representation of modules (277) and
superpackages (294)? Shouldn't we strive to have only one class to
represent both concepts? Maybe I'm oversimplifying but this sounds
achievable to me.
