An alternative would be to have a tool working in parallel with the
compiler and let it check this kind of things, a global linter. Another
useful similar thing would be to check that called external functions
are really exported from the respective module (and if they are, if they
are explicitly so, or through export_all).

This feature is of course planned for a future release of Erlide :-)
