No. No! NO!!! I would rather see globally valid declarations, not only
forward. This concening not only the module body, but inter-module
connections as well. Just imagine -- it the third millenium, compiling the
"best language", we need carefully order the .cmo files. Doing this also
would push the "mutually recursive modules" problem.
