Oooh, Andy, you are subversive.  ;-)

Honestly, I'm not yet a 100% convinced that we should get rid of it.
I'm well aware of its shortcomings (inevitable name clashes, mostly),
but it feels like a natural fit in a system with first-class modules.
Admittedly, I'm still in search of a problem the hierarchical name space
could solve, but, hey, who knows?  :-)

I'm also slightly concerned about compatibility issues if we remove it.
