I would actually be surprised if people who say they want "scan upward"
actually want something else: they want to scan upward up to a limit.

If you have a complex package with, say, three levels you may want to
scan up through the levels of your own package. However, if your package
is later incorporated in a third party package I can hardly imagine that
you want to scan in there too.
