Stop worrying: the Closure Compiler (which the "goog" approach uses)
is specifically designed to handle stuff like those "deep" namespaces.
It checks dependencies, so it knows what it can and cannot rename, and
it checks for collisions when doing the renaming. The result of all
this is that you can during development use namespaces however deep
you like - "this.is.a.really.deep.namespace.dont.you.think - but if
the Closure Compiler figures it can get away with it, it will
ruthlessly refactor that to: "a".
