Pd-extended did not introduce namespace prefixes, Miller did that  
probably before I even heard of Pd.  Pd-extended is just organized  
around that idea.  Pd-vanilla fully supports namespace prefixes.  I  
don't know how many times I have to say this, but it hasn't changed  
since the beginning.  I guess its just part of the ebb and flow of  
this list to have this discussion every 6 months. ;)

Man has survived hitherto because he was too ignorant to know how to  
realize his wishes.  Now that he can realize them, he must either  
change them, or perish.    -William Carlos Williams
