14:28 ugexe nine: any pointers on where to look to implement aliasing names? `require Foo:file<a/b/c.pm6>; Foo::some-sub()` or `require c:name<Foo>; Foo::some-sub()` - both get parsed ok and create the namespace but no alias is created yet
14:28 ugexe (where /a/b/c.pm6 contains `unit module c;`, and not `unit module Foo;`)
15:21 nine ugexe: sounds non-trivial
15:21 nine ugexe: I'd look at Perl6::World where the symbols are imported
15:23 nine But what happens when the file contains multiple symbols in its top level scope?
15:28 ugexe "If you need to have two different versions of the same compunit loaded at the same time, you can specify the name of the compunit separately with the :name adverb: ... This would alias Dog of cpan:JRANDOM, version 1.2.1 to OldDog in the current lexical scope."
15:29 ugexe looks like it doesn't have a solution for that
