Inspired by Jean-Louis question about what to put to namespace detail, I
would be interested learning about rationale of name of the namespace
detail (sometimes details or impl too).
Recently, I've participated in a very interesting discussion, on ACCU
members mailing list, about prefixes and suffixes like Base or _base nad
Impl or _impl, as misused, irrelevant and confusing, meaningless, etc.
For example, how to properly name elements of PIMPL idiom and similar.
During the discussion I suggested that 'detail' is a good name for
namespace dedicated to implementation details being not a part of public
interface of a component. I got answer that it as the same issues (it's
meaningless) as Impl etc.
It raised some questions for myself, being interested in improving my
craft, I would like to learn better about the name of namespace detail.
I use detail name myself. Any better names for bucket with
