One global namespace, the internals are all built-in statically.  I  
doubt you can override built-in names, but I don't know specifically.   
I'd be curious to hear about the search path for Max.

AFAIK, Max/MSP users basically operate under the assumption that if  
there is a name conflict, you need to chuck on of them.
