I agree it would be a very good thing to solve. It would be nice to
have a solution where you could have multiple modules of the same
names in the runtime. But perhaps it is not a question of renaming
modules, but rather a question of module visibility. Making a module
visible under another name is a way to avoid name clashes.

No it doesn't. I think the assumption is that the source code is
available. Handling legacy/binary code is a more involved problem.
