We certainly need something in this direction.  We should be clear
that each language has its own namespace for modules.  We should also
have a way to specify language as part of a dependency name, to manage
cross-language dependencies.  Doing those suggests that language could
be consistently stated in META as part of the module name, rather than
needing a separate field.
I think that's out of scope for this change. We need to fix
limitations of current META, not solve the broader CP6AN problem.
