Pardon my curiosity.  

Paul Reed mentioned the tidy method of deactivating a module by 
aliasing to a stub. The immediate objective was to deactivate test 
output.  An acceptable use for aliasing?

Without aliasing, a constant can activate or deactivate output.  Paul 
hinted at risk in that.  

Have you another way to switch output?  

Thanks,                                ... P.
