I understand, and agree completely.

Right, I expected that this was not planned to be done soon. Perhaps
we could start this by putting at least the compiler into proper
modules, as it only has a few entry-points that need to be accessed
externally, and this could be done via the "<module>#<binding>"
notation. The problem here is that the compiler is spread over several
files and would need a restructuring into several files + modules.
