We need nested modules, but I'm thinking that we would be okay disallowing
the exporting of modules in the first pass.  If modules cannot be exported
(and hence imported), are there still problems (with complexity or

I'm still trying to get a handle on the problem or complexity which arises
when adding the ability to export modules.  Is there a way that we can
state the problem in terms of an algorithm (graph traversal, etc)?
