We already have namespacing sort of, people can make something like dstufft.mypy and that works fine. The main thing that doesn’t exist is there’s no way to claim an entire namespace to prevent someone else from taking something in your namespace.

However, I don’t think most people really want that, people like having shorter names that aren’t tied to a specific namespace generally.
