Wait, I know that you are implementing roles that way in your antlib
proposal, but it seems that Conor, Peter, Adam and myself prefer roles
to be based on the type of the thing to add, not of the containing

I think Adam has explained how Myrmidon deals with name clashes in a
context where roles are not determined by the container.

I agree, but I won't touch it know as I want to wait how Costin is
going to address this - I'm sure he'll do - in the TaskFactory
proposal he's working on.
