Then you have to get everyone using that package to agree not to
create naming conflicts. E.g., if I decide to publish `d.foo`,
nobody else is allowed to publish their own `d.foo`.
But if you are capable of doing that, then you don't need the
package at all: you can just get everybody to agree to avoid
naming conflicts at the top level.
The reason prefixes like `geod24` are necessary in the first
place is because we *cannot* get the entire community to
coordinate in the way that you're proposing.
