Subject Re: [s2] The death of the .action extension

Thanks Ted.  The assumption is still that the action names are in the 
same package, so I added a new feature request for an annotation that 
combines the action and namespace.  I find this particularly useful when 
a single action class can be used from several workflows, yet the URL 
(action/namespace) needs to remain consistent for the current workflow.  
I think it also matches the view tags better (url,form) as they always 
provide an action name and namespace attribute.
