This is actually something I would like to see myself. Separating code 
into modules is all great, but when integrating large applications, the 
possibility of name space collisions becomes somewhat more possible than 
when implementing standalone units. While not an insurmountable issue, 
it would be good if we could create our own namespaces into which we add 
application/library specific modules. That way (for example) YAWS could 
have a "command_parser" module, as could modules in other libraries, and 
my application without cause for strange naming conventions. Much as I 
dislike Java for some of it's design - the implementation of packages 
wasn't too bad.
