in reply to Appending 1 to package

Well, if you like, you could use:
'End of Package';

As for the why's, require (which is automagically called as part of a use on a module) wants any initialization code that's run in the module to return a true or false value to indicate whether or not initialization was successful. Since false is implicitly returned instead of true, you have to specify.
