I've decided that this is actually a good thing.  It allows large 
modules to be split across multiple files and for different 
implementation files to be chosen at compile time when using the 
header/source model.  It's also the only way I've found to compile the 
implementation of "object.d" for Tango.  Actually naming it "object.d" 
caused all sorts of problems.
