A loong time ago, when I played around with packages, I noticed
that dotted file names didn't go well with embedded boot code
loading. It was the erl_prim_loader module, I think.

Even if you're not using embedded code loading, the kernel
and stdlib modules are always pre-loaded. I have no idea
if this issue was ever addressed.
