So Object-C can import C, but C cannot import C.

Objective-C is a proper superset of C AFAIK.

I had thought that was just for ObjectiveC. It seems it does work for C, though the user has to create "module map" files:

"To actually see any benefits from modules, one first has to introduce module maps for the underlying C standard library and the libraries and headers on which it depends. The section Modularizing a Platform describes the steps one must take to write these module maps."

I guess going around the horn is a synonym for lets pretend there wasn't prior art and keep arguing D did it first, as usual.

Writing a paper is not doing it first.

Why do you care so much about being "first"? Would you not have implemented and made a presentation about it if you didn't think it was the first implementation?

Because it's fun to be first!

How's it fun to be first? Why is it that what other people are doing, with no connection to you, reduces the 'fun' you have? Are you having fun trying to dismiss every implementation of modules in C so you can be "first"?
