I assume you mean the "namespace" keyword part of PEP 422, since PEP
422's class initialization feature is entirely orthogonal to
definition order or namespace customization.  (Indeed, I cannot recall
a single instance of class initialization in my code that actually
*cared* about definition order.  Certainly I haven't had any
situations where a pre-existing definition order would've eliminated
the need for a class-level initialization.)
