Do you mean that you are contemplating switching to fortran90? ;)

May I ask what part of that abomination you consider to be a proper module system?

Note that compile-time overloading is completely different from multiple dispatch.
Remember: we, fortran programers, don't understand the difference, so does it really matter?
