This would be a very *bad thing*, as long as the current model---where exports are something wildly different from properties of an object, but instead are cross-file `with`-esque read-only-but-mutable bindings---was maintained. It's extremely important that these bindings look and are manipulated as differently as possible from normal declarations and destructuring of object properties.
