Hi Steven,

In the telecon today, we were unable to get back around to the topic after 
the beginning of the call, but with respect to your proposed feedback 
here:

Nick and I both felt that in principle the backwards compatibility 
argument was a good piece of feedback.

I wondered, however, at what a resulting change would look like.  Would 
the behavior of  unqualified names seem bizarre or unnatural to 
namespace-aware authors? 

A few code examples might clarify quickly whether it "feels right".

Thanks,
