Please provide a short example.

In case I got you right: 
	If you have in those two modules, variables or subroutines which share the same name - than you can't escape prefixing those
names with the modules' namespace.
Of course, of the code in those modules is "object oriented" (i.e. the modules are written as objects) - you can instanciate an
instance of each, with a different name - and from there on you should have no problem.
