I read your explanation for Richard in the other thread, that was
very helpful.

This seems like a good hack.

>From my perspective, it seems more like an opt-in, per-file
preprocessor that does search-and-replace intelligently on symbols,
and leaves the pre-processing information around for elisp-mode to
handle xref etc., than anything to do with namespaces. That was the
cause of my confusion. If people want to deal with the drawbacks of
pre-processing, that's up to them. I have seen much worse
pre-processing done in Elisp packages.

I like it.
