So, why is it that it is a hack in the context of a visual dataflow 
programming language and, I presume that you mean that non-visual and/or 
non-dataflow programming languages are somehow different?

I'd say that declarations are annoying in any language, and 
fully-qualified names are annoying in any language, but with some 
languages and editors it's easier to handle it than in some others, and in 
some it annoys more than in others.

Do you mean namespace declarations in particular, or namespaces in general 
including full-qualified names, or do you just mean the latter, or just 
long names in general?
