Currently MSVC defines two different kinds of translation
units that both use the syntax "module foo:bar":

* `cl -internalPartition -c example.cpp` writes a BMI for the
   module partition.

* `cl -c example.cpp` expects a BMI for the module partition
   to already be present, and reads it. It is like a
   "module implementation unit", but for a module partition.

Daniel, to which does "Module Implementation Partition Unit" refer?
