I think (but I'm not sure) that "namespace * com.blah.blah" will do what 
you want.

Subject:        Reducing namespace boilerplate?

If I want my .thrift to be compatible with C++ and Java, I think I have to
write both:

namespace cpp com.blah.blah


namespace java com.blah.blah

Which seems redundant when the namespaces are the same. I'd much rather
write something like:

namespace com.blah.blah

And just let all languages use the same namespace scheme. But thrift 0.9.0
doesn't seem to support this, throwing an empty compile error about 

Is there a way to do this in current Thrift? Are there plans in the future
to support the syntax I'm after?
