Suppose you are writing a module that uses only flonum arithmetic.
Which is worse, a little bit of messiness in import, or constantly
using fl+, fl-, fl*, fl/, etc. etc. etc.?  Since there is no option for
deprefixing names when they are imported, I'd rather be able to call
addition and subtraction by their normal names.
