I fully concur. The design of XML, in general, is not the best
demonstration of aesthetics in programming. But namespaces always seem to
me to be one further step in the WTF direction. This is precisely why I
didn't reject this issue right away: perhaps it's not a bad idea to provide
Python programmers with *some* way to ease namespace-related tasks (even if
they go against the questionable design principles behind XML).
