Yep, that's exactly why it's directory based. Due to a practice of
separating packages into a stand alone directory.
It's an idea to resolve the issue by using configuration rather than by
changing the (existing/old) source code.

Or is it planned to identify a namespace by it's physical location?
(through another configuration setting?)

Make the option to be per directory, but also per file?
(Something similar to delphi's  "uses  unit in 'filepath'?  but for search

off-topic: In the particular case of IDE for OSX, shouldn't macosall.pas be
used? That should eliminate the need of univint/dialogs.pas
