Hi all,

while trying to turn various internal markers of a work project
into public plugins, i noticed a very plain problems - different other
plugins used the same generic marker name for different purposes/intents

such a flat namespace really doesn't scale

as such i would like to propose having marker types and objects as
importable objects

for example

import pytest
from pytest_bugzilla import Blocker

def test_fun():

that way we can do both, reuse python name-spacing *and* use more
meaningful objects for markings
