Priority        : medium
Bug Description ---------------------------

The format for the class viewer needs to be changed.
I am working on a large project where all of my classes are contained
in a single namespace for separation from third party code.
When I try to use the class viewer all of my classes get put into the
Namespaces folder. This is useless - it takes me longer to find them
than in the RFV.
Please change the viewer so that a Namespaces folder occurs for
each (physical) folder in the project, or so there is an option to do
Alternatively, put Namespaces at a level higher than Classes
(which is how it should be) then have a Classes folder for each
namespace and relevant folders contained within each.
Namespaces are a CENTRAL part of C++ please don't ignore their

How to repeat the error -------------------

Create a project with many classes over many folders.
Put each class in the same namespace eg.

namespace myNamespace
    class myNewClass
    { ...
