Meaning that every *local* use of those same names now has to be
adorned with "ns." to access the same thing:

ns.channel = get_channel_setup(ns.channelid)

Thanks, I think that's even worse than using locals(). Didn't think
that was possible. :)

Whether it's worse or not will very much be situation dependent, but my experie3nce is that if I'm passing a bunch of keyword arguments along, most of them, ate NOT used directly in the local namespace anyway.
