Agreed! The recent work to clearly mark extensions is a real feather in 
the cap of the GNU implementation, I think. Hopefully time will reach a 
similar verdict.

I suggest people check out the lib reflector...

I think namespace aliasing makes this less of an issue, but am still 
interested in what others think.
