I think it should actually be the other way round. One advantage of namespaces 
is that they have a documenting effect on the code. A disadvantage is that 
you have to type more. With that eclipse "feature", you'd have to type more 
and still don't get the positive effect.
It would be better if you could type just the unqualified name, and the editor 
would automatically add the namespaces, or - if the name is ambiguous - give 
a list and let the user choose.
