The difference is that packages exist right now and are in the OTP
distribution. They're just still flagged as experimental. Abstract
patterns and structs stopped at the written description phases.
I am one person. I am paid to do other things. If anyone wanted to
fund me to spend some time implementing either or both, I'd love to do that.
Right now I really ought to be marking assignments, sigh.
Someone has already mentioned Eiffel's LACE, which solves the module (class)
name clash problem from the outside. LACE is a nice idea, and the reified
module name spaces I mentioned are partly inspired by LACE and partly by
Obliq and partly by a declarative configuration language for Mesa developed
at Xerox. And it's not entirely unlike SASL.
