//start file C.d  this fele is the reason...

	//so you can't access FunctionB(x); /*Because x can't be define*/

I'm sorry but a private import is not a private module. A private import is seen as private by external modules and as such cannot be accessed. Also the import would be meaningless if it changed the access privileges of any module since by your logic public import would change private functions to public. If you are trying to make a module that cannot have anything imported from it make everything inside of the module private.
