I'm not offended. Here are some thoughts: 1. You have not successfully argued that the benefits of adding namespaces to Lemon outweigh the costs. 2. The extra maintenance load on Lemon for adding namespaces, while not significant, is also non-zero. Long-term maintenance is a cost. We need to understand that this benefits outweigh this cost. 3. Others have argued that namespaces are not really needed, as the identifiers generated by Lemon can be isolated by other means. (I forget the details of how that was suppose to be done, but I seem to recall reading it someplace.) This tends to reduce the benefit side of the inequality. 4. The people (mostly me) who will need to maintain Lemon namespaces for the [next 30 years] do not derive any direct benefit from namespaces, and it fact do not understand how they might be useful. I tend to be unimpressed with "new and shiny" and like to see an actual real-world problem that the feature genuinely solves before adding it. : https://www.sqlite.org/lts.html If you would like to see namespaces in Lemon, you will need to convince me that the cost and bother of supporting a feature that I do not use, for 30 years, is less than the societal benefit of installing that feature. In other words, you need to convince me that namespace support in Lemon is a net positive over a 30-year timespan. That has not yet been accomplished.
