If you want me to take an interest in the thread, you'll certainly need to
construct some good examples that illustrate the perceived problem. I can
think of ideas for improving the current modularity mechanisms, for example
by allowing variables, functions, and named templates to have global scope
within a module without being public to other modules, or by allowing them
to be declared "final" so they can't be overridden; but I don't really see a
need for a module that imports objects from another module to alias the
names of those objects, which is what you seem to be proposing. In fact, I
can't think of any language that does that.
