The doc explicitly says:
"his function does not handle hierarchical module names (names
So you may say that it's up to the programmer to comply with the doc,
and shouldnt expect things to work well if not.
But, I dont want to handle a hierarchical module: just a non
hierarchical one that appends to have a dot in it's name, and it's not
so explicit that this would break.
The fact that it "almost" work is even more strange, and error prone.
But I dont know, I wont say that this has to be fixed in any way outside
of the programmer's code.
