I can only agree with this. s/willow/spark/ and we have an example of such
a situation in maven already today, of two different libraries with the

With the options to specify group, no problem, then I could just write:
requires spark-core from com.sparkjava or requires spark-core from
org.apache.spark in order to clarify which was intended.
