Rafael, I'm not sure how you currently do symbol look-up in mbas, but
couldn't the above situation be handled via a breadth-first search on
the module names first then the names of members within the modules?
This can be done very rapidly if you use scoped symbol tables.

I personally do an:
Imports strs = Microsoft.VisualBasic.Strings
which I believe mbas handles just fine right now(?).
