digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 20796] New: protection attribute package(x.y) does not bind

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20796

          Issue ID: 20796
           Summary: protection attribute package(x.y) does not bind to one
                    of ancestor packages of module x.y when declared in
                    x/y/package.d
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: iamthewilsonator hotmail.com

file x/y/package.d:

module x.y;
package(x.y) void foo();

results in 

x/y/package.d(2): Error: protection attribute package(x.y) does not bind to one
of ancestor packages of module x.y

which is patently false. 

In particular this makes it very annoying to convert a large module, say x.y,
into a package and convert all private protection symbols to package(x.y)
symbols when moving symbols from x.y to x.y.a.
