Before package.d support, you could not do any importing of packages. You could only import modules. package.d was how the compiler allowed importing packages.


I don't know that there is a fundamental difference between foo/package.d and foo.d, but this is just the solution that was chosen. Is it a mistake? I don't think so, it's just a preference.

Prior to this, it was common to put "package" imports into an "all.d" file:

foo/all.d // import fooPart1.d fooPart2.d
foo/fooPart1.d

Ok, do you know why is this not allowed?

foo.d
foo/bar.d
