If the focus of my email was lost in the justification for the colon,
I apologize. My point is that I'd prefer the colon syntax to the @
syntax. Colons in grammar naturally indicate some sort of explanation
follows. In the case of modules, it would be the module version.
Perhaps it's a superficial criticism, but I do not like @ being used
for both annotating and module versioning.
