I agree with you there.  It could have been implemented in such a way that
modules in the top level package are implicitly imported. The problem with
this is the 'everything' is in the top level package.  A better option would
be to move all the standard modules under the erlang package (eg.
erlang.lists) and have the compiler implicitly import everything under the
erlang package.
