Precisely what we have talked about in context of Ant2. ;)

The problem is that some people complained that namespaces is too verbose and 
complex. So we instead decided to go the same way as java does with imports. 
ie Once you import a type you can access it without a namespace prefix.

(Actually, this is Finagle's law, which in itself 
shows that Finagle was right.)
