That's true. I thought, maybe just list submodules as separate
entries. Exposing the internal structure of modules, with the concept
of shortcuts etc., would be another solution but it might be a little

Do you really think they could ever change that they shouldn't be
exposed? After all, all the built-in/3rdparty modules already depend
on the naming, so I guess you already have to maintain that.
