Why is that? The documentation states the following:

The Identifier preceding the rightmost are the packages  that the module is in.
The packages correspond to directory names in the source file path.

Therefore, I would interpret the first import statement as importing the module
name, and the second import statement as importing the module foo in the
package name.

Can't packages be distinguished from modules?
