Thanks, Dave, for bringing that up, it shows you're open for feedback. That
said (bikeshed begins), what's wrong with:
import "fs" as fs;
? I feel that a lot of effort went in ES6 into reducing boilerplate via
e.g. arrow functions, classes etc. but if you start with Node's require,
this adds clutter. Compare these 3 forms of importing all the module
"lodash" bindings to an object _:
var _ = require("lodash"); // Node
import * as _ from "lodash"; // Dave's syntax
import "lodash" as _;
