You are quite right that Digester's general handling of namespaces is very poor.
This is acknowledged in the package.html file for digester. However there is no
way to fix this across the whole app without major binary incompatibilities, and
we just can't break that many users.

You can find the "digester2" project in subversion:
 http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jakarta/commons/proper/digester/branches/digester2/

Because this uses the package name "org.apache.commons.digester2", it can
happily co-exist with digester1. It is intended to fix many issues with the
digester1 design, including the namespaces one.

However I don't currently have much time to work on digester2, and there isn't
anyone else actively moving it forward. So if you need robust namespace support
right now, unfortunately you will need to use something other than Digester.

The specific namespace problem you originally raised in this bugrequest is
somehting we should think about, as Robert indicated. Hopefully Robert or I will
get around to this soon, but unfortunately we're both very busy people right now
and as noted this is a little tricky from a backwards-compatibility viewpoint :-(.
