Let me stress once more that the Batteries hierarchy is not
advertising anything like that. What is "advertising" (modulo syntax
extensions helping out) is to open partial module paths which just
contain other modules. I believe that scenario to be sensibly
different than yours, and less prone to clashes.

Cheers.
