There are 2 kinds of automatic modules:
- based of the filename
- from the Automatic-Module-Name attribute in the MANIFEST file.
The latter can be considered safe to refer to, since the maintainer has picked this name. Using it should still be done with care
To show the difference I'd propose a subtle difference in their display:
- – name.from.filename (auto)
- – name.from.manifest [auto]
Just like with versions the brackets refer to a locked item, we can do the same here.
