The exact same thing happens when cstuff.c is actually named cstuff.d. But, when:

    module foo.bar.cstuff;

is added to cstuff.d, it compiles without error.

The trouble is, when a module statement is not present, the compiler names the module as if:

    module <filename>;

was present. <filename> is `cstuff`. The compiler does the same thing for .c files - it assigns a module name of `cstuff`, not `foo.bar.cstuff`.

This boils down to the fact that C files do not have a means to name the module. I think we're kinda stuck here.

ImportC added import statements to C files, why not module statements?
