Module names should be unique

Description

When you compile a program which uses a module and defines a module of the same name, the compiler should probably give a warning or error.

A practical (simplified) example of this which alicemaz ran into:

I think we can't really do this in the interpreter because re-evaluating an existing module should be possible on the REPL (think incremental development from Emacs etc).
