[swift-evolution] Name disambiguation of computed property/function with same type defined in extensions

Actually I don’t like the prioritization of the modules import. I’m much more in favor of disambiguating at call site. like we have to do in any other case of ambiguity in Swift. The concept of precedence is only present in operators and that makes sense because it’s in their nature. I think #4 or #5 or any other way to disambiguate at call site would be the most appropriate.
