I've been considering this myself. KSpell2 used a namespace for all
its classes. Most other classes in KDE, however, seem just to use
distinct names or a prefix in the name. KOffice prefixes its class
with ko. I'd prefer not to use a namespace, but I've yet decide on
naming scheme and have thus solicited outside advice. I think
prefixing internal (although still accessible) classes with Sonnet and
those meant to be used by application developers with
KUniqueAndDescriptiveName might be best.

All development right now is taking place in branches/work so they
aren't auto-generated. I just created a few for the classes I've
documented so far.
