BTW, someone (Raman?) on this thread said that namespaces save typing.
That's not exactly right; that goal is achieved with autocompletion (as
he already noticed).  What namespaces really do is twofold:

1. Help avoid collisions, and

2. (last but not least!) save on reading.

Long function names are really bad.

Elisp is not Java.
