what i tried to make clear is, that we will finish up again in the 
explicit namespaces (no matter which delimiters are used)

but sill, i don't like the idea of "." very much, it is to 
filename-like. i'd prefer another (not used in everyday-life) delimiter, 
but cannot think of one (right now ?)

anyhow, my repeated use of "the already discussed namespacing problem" 
was intended, because it was not my intention to start another long 
discussion about namespacing (that will end up in ":: would be so great 
because we already know this from oop-langs like c++" vs. "no, i cannot 
type this on my mac. let's use . instead")
still, he problem is unsolved and has to be fixed sometimes


(running the risk of asking a asked question again, but:) how do 
mac-people program seriously without ":" ???
