This talking about namespaces, Key -> Value mappings reminded me of
a document from Hans Reiser that was also on Slashdot recently:

http://www.namesys.com/whitepaper.html
http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=02/01/29/1735234&mode=thread
http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/4/23852.html

The reason for bringing this up again were the signs that the
next major Windoze shall unify the filesystem with a database server.
But I remember Mr. Reiser writing (mostly incomprehensible stuff to me :)
about namespaces when reiserfs turned up first.
