it's turned out that the namespace improvements we're been talking about 
can be implemented in a way that's almost binary compatible with digester.
  i have an idea that - with a little work - it might be possible to tweak 
them so that they are completely compatible.

there will be deprecation and replacement but not very much removal. the 
API will contain more duplication and will be less clean but that's a 
small price to pay for compatibility.

cool. i'll look forward to seeing them :)

i'm coming around to the opinion that this additional namespace support 
should be provided as part of digester 1.x.
