I would like to see a feature that allows you to do this. However, I think
there are better ways to achieve this. For starters, a way to do modules
like in Scheme48 or Standard ML. For Erlang, Scheme48 is definitely a good
way forward, since both languages are dynamically typed:

Do note some similarity to Joe Armstrong's Erlang2 proposal. There are also
some digging going on w.r.t these ideas in the Elixir community.
