For this one point, you can already do that, with small modules that
pull in the planet dependency and re-export everything. You may object
by saying that you had to plan ahead for this upgrade, but really
you're objecting about `module' itself, not about planet (and I hear
there are some plans along these lines coming from the Utah guys).
