Given your status as a member of the Foundation, is there a plan/track of sorts to convert such a DIP-less -preview feature to a full-fledged one? I know it's a lot of work to write an improvement proposal, and deliberation with the community is a seemingly tiring (but necessary) ordeal, but I'm concerned that this feature will be in purgatory if its author becomes busy or forgets about it. (Barring another individual assuming proprietorship.)

I'm not sure. I will bring it up at the next foundation meeting.

I wrote the implementation for that and I've made it clear that I have zero interest in going through the DIP process; I'm done with it as is. Someone else will have to do whatever else they decide to do.

The fix for Issue 21508 - private class p in file p.d visible outside the file (module) removed a behavior that was (wrongly) used from time to time:

module Foo;
class Foo {...}

The class Foo can no longer be imported with import Foo; This is a surprising breaking change. Perhaps it should be documented more explicitly.
