Exactly.  Using mypackage.mymodule instead of just mymodule is the
entire *point* of a package.  That way, if someone creates another
module with using the same name (mymodule), it won't conflict with
yours.  If you don't want to change mymodule to mypackage.mymodule,
why use a package in the first place?
