As the situation currently stands, that is actually no better. When I enable, 
say, ten modules at one time and get three "Your module was enabled." 
messages, that does not improve the situation. I would rather scroll down the 
list and get that visual confirmation. If this changes so that all modules 
display that message, then having ten "Your module was enabled." messages 
won't really be much more help, though I could then at least count the 
messages. Having "The $module module was enabled." (or something similar) 
would be better.
