Yes, absolutely. But explaining that it is *similar* but somewhat
different will be much better when explaining it to people who know
about modules and not applitudes.
Also, "modular" is a *very* positive word for techies so you may want
to use it in presentations and *then* explain how applitudes make really
cool modularity possible.
