  Here is another idea one might play around with:

  The interesting with modules is that the names from different modules
cannot clash. But then one want to load several modules and work with them
in a convenient way.

  For example, if one has two modules phys and math, with abbreviation of
names from physics and mathematics, and say these have the names \phys_T
(for time) and \math_T (for torus), and one needs to use both these side by
side. Always typing the full names might be inconvenient, so one can think
of commands like
and then one would use \/T or \|T in formulas as long as these
abbreviations are valid.

  -- One can note if this idea is carried out fully, then \module really
refers to the module named ``module'' governing the behavior of modules.
(Just as Java has a class named Class).
