Summary0000490: when importing A.B, do not require importing A
DescriptionCurrently, a module X that imports A.B must also import A; if it does not, it gets
an error about A.B being inaccessible. This makes C unnecessarily dependent on A,
which is undesirable; for example, it leads to X having to be recompiled when
a new submodule A.C gets added to A, even though X has nothing to do with A.C.

This issue was discussed on m-rev in november of 2015 in a thread named
"should we break up module_qual.m". This discussion reached a concensus
in favour of this change.
