The namespace bug I found in 0.40 just made me think of starting a  
wiki to document these ideas.  I think we should have a pretty clear  
idea of how we want to implement namespaces before this is  
implemented.  Since Miller has added some namespace-related stuff in  
0.40, I think the time is now to start discussing.


For example, one issue that just came up is namespace prefixes.   
Namespace prefixes are not optional, every decent namespace that I  
have used allows you to both import/declare and call classes directly  
using the whole path.  Here's how Java does, in a rough example:

import my.lib;
Prepend myPrepend = new Prepend();  // from my.lib
other.lib.Prepend myOtherPrepend = new other.lib.Prepend();



News is what people want to keep hidden and everything else is  
publicity.          - Bill Moyers
