There are no problems. It's just an idea. Why must everybody be so
ambiguous? Anyways, I'll try to be clearer:

I think it would be a good idea to namespace the kdevelop libraries. I
have no technical reasons for this. I like namespaces. I think it can
make the code cleaner in a lot of cases. I try to do it whenever it
makes sense. I think it makes sense here, so I propose it.

Do you want the kdevelop libraries to be namespaced? (yes or no is all I need)

If yes, do you have any other ideas for a name?

Since I seem to be the only one (besides Adam and Hamish) who seem to be
pushing things along, I'm just doing what I want when I want, except for
when I think there might be some controversy. Hence this discussion. If
the majority of folks don't want namespacing, that's ok. We won't do
namespacing in that case.
