hmmm, good point.

here is my suggestion: a vpc is just syntax sugar, it should not change 
the semantics. this means that internal labels should be treated as just 
if they were external.

the only issue is with collisions and here I think overloading should 
apply: if the label is on the vpc and the vpc itself includes a 
component that has the same label, the output of the whole vpc will be 
sent to the view.
