It is clear that shorthand.el avoids the Lisp namespace traps.
It aims to do something far less sophisticated, and I think
that if it ever doesn't do what the user wants, 
perse can see how to work around it.

What objections have people stated to it?
Have people found problems in it, or have they only
criticized it for not being a real namespace system?

Of course, what we actually install should not be implemented using
advice.  It should be added to the C code.

Perhaps if you load a file, magnars.el, for instance, which specifies
symbol renaming rules, Emacs should remembers which symbols were
renamed and how.  Then it could automatically do precisely those
renamings to each on each file that somehow says it uses magnars.el.

Would this have a flaw?
