I think the problem is that packages were implemented in an
undesirable way. Erlang does have a package system, but AFIAK nobody
uses it or likes it.

What I don't like about the package system is that any time you use it
you need to do a bunch of explicit stuff to use standard modules (e.g.
-import(list) or something).
