True, they are not the same issue. I guess the connection for me is that
they are both examples of overloading a single mechanism to accomplish at
best orthogonal and often conflicting goals. Right now we're using dumb
strings to define: 1) method visibility (e.g. "private") 2) extension
package 3) categorization. It seems way overdue for a real model. Thus I was
surprised that there seemed to be resistance to change.
