GHCi allows for %s in the prompt, which is replaced by the currently loaded module followed by all imported modules. However, my .ghci imports about a hundred modules, making the prompt way too long when I use %s. It would be useful to have an option for showing just the current module, and not all the imported modules.

I think #5850, and the accompanied patch, will allow you to do what you want. Please reopen this ticket if it does not suit your needs.
