Hi again!

Once I say 'I did it that and that way', all are coming to answer me... 
Nice :)

It's not the "namespace" keyword... that is done the way you suggested 
(besides using m_none instead of m_all as Jonas mentioned).

I'm talking about the namespace value itself.

E.g. the C++ code

namespace Foo::Bar {
	class FooBar {


becomes to

FooBar = cppclass

end; namespace Foo.Bar;

in Pascal.

Or should I use a stringconst instead of point delimited identifiers? 
Like it's done for external...

Hmm... ok... but would there be any problem with using another field in 
objectdef, that is not saved to ppu, to save the mangled name, so I 
don't need to mangle it every time a method of that class is mangled? 
(maybe wrapped with a getter function for "lazy mangling" :D)
