Modules ... thoughts

Any opinion about and "endmod." declaration:

Proposal

The file myapp.erl might contain

  -module(foo).
  ....
  ....
  -endmod.

  -module(bar).
  ...
  ...
  -endmod.

Compiling this produces

myapp.beam

loading myapp.beam loads all the code in foo, bar, ..., this
has several advantages:

    1) distribute only one file
    2) modules in file cannot live a life of their own and become
       separated
    3) code loading is faster
