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.
