Yikes, you're right, that's tough to resolve unless we say dots
aren't allowed in package/directory or script names.  Or we can
escape them in the script:

    @load foo\.bar.foo.bar\.blub\.something
    @load foo\.bar.foo.bar\.blub\.something\.bro

I think exposing the dotted format to users this way might be more
trouble than it's worth, want to ditch (1) in the original proposal?
