You can have modules with a name

Veryvery.LOng.But.self.ExPl4n4t0ry.N4m3

that can be hard to type and read, but by saying

module Forshort = Veryvery.LOng.But.self.ExPl4n4t0ry.N4m3
module Storage = Db.Core.Storage

you will have shorter names that can be hidden, by removing them in the
signature file.
