Then, another example:
You want to work with ZIP and RAR format files. So, imagine you found,
on the net, 2 libs, one for each type format. The problem is each lib
uses the same name to main unit e.g. zip.pas.
Both libs are very used by million of people on the world and they,
the developers do not want to change the name of yours unit.
And now, you understood the little problem?
