Not at this point - I'm just restoring the original simple
dir=namespace/file=class.cpp correspondance that got a bit mangled by
the autobuild changes.

Can  you please add your thoughts to QPID-342, which is about
refactoring of the C++ client API for binary compatibility. That would
be the time to make the changes you propose. 

Actually this probably merits a separate JIRA. Right now there's no
basis for me to do a renaming because there's no consensus on the
correct names. Also seems like we need broder agreement on API than just
class names if you want a meaningful cross-language API.

Like Gordon I am  not in favour of prefixes on identifiers when
namespaces are a better choice. I'm also not keen on calling a Channel a
Session - the word Session is nowhere used in AMQP 0-8, and it almost
certainly will be used in 0-10 with a very different meaning. I think
any agreed cross-language API must be based strictly on terms from the
AMQP protocol.

Anyhow if you want to start a JIRA for this, please link it to QPID-342
so I wont forget.
