OK. Substitute whatever format we end up using for distribution of
modules within RPM, DPKG, vcpkg, ports, etc. It just can't be "nothing"
because otherwise modules are effectively only useful in monorepo
build-the-world-from-scratch projects. Which is not how C++ works today
in the realm of FOSS. And it is best if that format is compatible
between otherwise-compatible compilers too.
