Those who worked with me on some of my PHP-based projects know my aching desire to see namespace support in PHP6. It should be noted Andi Gutmans some time ago reaffirmed it was on the docket, though, no real progress has been made over the past few months. Well today we seem to have received another proposal and patch to implement namespaces coming from Zend’s Dmitry Stogov. Maybe because this one currently has an unofficial stamp from someone from Zend it might make it through the debate process…I can only assume Dmitry has probably run this idea by some of the other developers at Zend including Andi. This is a chance for you PHP developers out there tired of getting around class name conflicts by using ridiculously long, prefixed class names to chime in on the proposal and patch and give constructive feedback.
