Speaking of the hijacked thread only, with correct namespace
implementation, it can indeed solve the problem of conflicting unit
names (of existing code out there) without the need to rename units.
See my other message thread, option 2. It will also allow me to use
the more ideally named unit names like constants.pas and utils.pas in
my projects - instead I have to keep coming up with new prefixes. I
already have gg_utils.pas, mm_utils.pas, fpg_utils.pas, m2c_utils.pas
for some of my projects. It would be awesome if I can simply use
utils.pas and define a namespace via a compiler parameter.
