If you want to be able to access namespace namespace from CNI, yes.

Well, I already suggested how you might fix gcjh. It's a matter of
whether you want to be able to access namespace namespace from CNI or
merely not have header files that choke C++. Why not try the fix?
Do you really need CNI access to namespace namespace ?
