Hi Andrew,

[Joseph beat me to answering but the following might add something to the discussion.]

Thanks for pointing this out — .set:N was (once upon a time) the old name for .tl_set:N. I’ve fixed it up.
Basically you shouldn’t need to distinguish package options from other keys — it’s all up to how the keys are processed. To be more explicit, let’s say that you did want to distinguish between package option keys and other keys; it would be quite natural to write

 \keys_define:nn { mymodule / pkgoptkeys }
   { option .tl_set:N = \l_module_variable_tl }

 \keys_define:nn { mymodule / otherkeys }
   { another-option .tl_set:N = \l_module_another_variable_tl }

Hope this helps,
