Totally agree, that is why I prefer using fully qualified identifiers. That
combined with my laziness and not-wide-enough screen lead me to prefer short
namespace names. Short as in "few letters but still very clear as to
semantics." Like "fs", but maybe not like "mpl"... I will leave it at this,
since I am deviating from Boost right now.
