No, no, no ! I think this is a very valuable addition to Guile's module
system, since it makes it easier to understand what's going on when you
look at a module.
I find it much easier to look at twenty lines of export, export-syntax and
reexport-from-module 'declarations' to understand the interface of a module
than having to look through hundreds of lines of code with define-public. I
never use define-public for this reason.
The only (very minor) gripe I have is that the name 'reexport-from-module'
is kind of awkward. How about 'export-from' plain and simple ?
