I've seen this error before myself, and I never found it very helpful (I don't
remember exactly what the code looked like, though). 

We should probably include a short example of what code produces this message.
I'm guessing it's something like this:

// file 1: pack/module1.d
import pack.module2;

//file 2: pack/module2.d
import pack.module1;

(from
http://www.digitalmars.com/d/archives/digitalmars/D/learn/Module_is_in_multiple_defined_7756.html)

Another related thread:

Also, it might be good to provide a suggestion for what the error message
should be (if it actually should be an error), but I don't really understand
what the message should be.
