Hi Ed,

One of the least consistent aspects of software languages is the
pragmata for dealing with modularization and importation.  The
Achillles' heel of CLIF is "modules", and it was partly designed to deal
with a semantic problem discovered in RDF importation.  These things are
not just syntactic -- modularization has a semantics, and it relates to
both syntactic structures and semantic structures.  As soon as you have
a radically different syntax, the common pattern (if any) for the
modularization semantics is modified to get the syntactic impacts right.

Might you elaborate as to what you mean here? Is the achilles heel aspect of "modules" in CLIF a reference to the issues Fabian raised on the CL list or is it something broader?
The module (and import) statements seem exceptionally useful...
