That's what I've been wondering. I really don't like the proposal to use . in various places to signify relative and absolute imports. It seems non-obvious both in understandability and readability.

Every example I've seen has looked wrong to me. I'll try to think of something I prefer, but I am definitely -1 on the proposed syntax changes.
