That is a pretty bold statement. I never ever run into name clashes, no
matter how big the project was/is. 

The no-name-clash dogma:

* Do not use global s/r-symbols (simple)

* Use global s/r-symbols for singletons (i.e. one server, many clients)

* Use global s/r-symbols in cases where the protocol is multinode-aware.
  (No matter how many instances of an abstraction using a global s/r-
  symbol are created, they will always be able to communicate with each
  other in the same way)
