>A question: why the ALL_CAPS_ namespace names?

I know, I know. It's because a lot of the boilerplate code is generated by
a shell script - I have to be able to deduce the namespace name from the
macro name in order for this (and the autoconf script) to work. It looks
as though I can use tr to convert from upper to lower case though, so maybe
I can make this go away.

What does "of the same name" mean in terms of an operator - another
operator of the same um, name, but with different argument types?
