Proposal: #CompileTimeDependences: `requires static`

Great resolution, except for `static` which sounds like reusing a 
keyword for no good reason, since module descriptors can have new 
keywords such as `uses`. If `requires optional` is unacceptable (it does 
not really sound so outrageous to my non-native-english eyes), perhaps 
`requires softly` would work?

Frankly, at this point I think the problem is that `requires` should be 
`import` which would also solve this issue with `import optional`.
