Honestly, I am not very inclined to publish my personal information
along with libraries....  It is better (for me) if modules are
specified by their checksum, or signatures (with some syntax sugar).

BTW, all collisions really occurred are between modules not available
from users.  This kind of problem can be solved if we can make
"private" modules completely invisible from the outside of packages.
