Richard Carlsson proposed java-like packages some
years ago, and the code for them might still be
provided in OTP. (I thought they had some flaws, but
they might be what you want.)


The usual approach to handling name clashes without
packages is to use your 'approach 2', prefixing the
modules with their owner application.
