Sorry, but you are mistaken here. The "a" being assigned is different
from the
global one. So, it is not flat. Each identifier is actually represented
by a location relative to a frame or environment.

That is not the case in ANT. Or more clearly everything inside a project
is on the same frame/environment. 

Now if this was Fortran-62, you do not declare 'a' so any usage or
will refer the the only one location for 'a' in the compilation module.
THAT is how ANT works today.
