Read again. Some people (myself included) thought it was an ugly wart
solving a problem that only a few newbies stumble across and making
erlang code harder to read and maintain.
One of the worst aspects of this would be the endless traversing up
and down interminable directory hierarchies. Soon we would need a full
IDE just to help us find the definition of a module in the filesystem.
