What if this:
export = "boo";
Actually creates a static export with some exotic name, say __DEFAULT__
(for the sake of argument) and initializes it to the value "boo".
And this form:
import boo from "boo.js";
Creates a binding to __DEFAULT__ in "boo.js", if it exists, or to the
module instance of "boo.js" otherwise.
Would that work as a desugaring?
