Simon Law added the comment:

15125-2.patch applies to the default branch.

It makes dest behave the same for positional and optional arguments in terms of name mangling.

Also, there is a backward-compatibility path in Namespace to support old-style getattr() access. However, it's not documented as we really don't want people to use it.
