Maybe I stepped into a holy war. I've been working with Java since  
1.1 (which is, like, *forever* in Internet time!) and the package  
naming and resolution scheme has never confused me. Without having  
any point to address other than "Java sucks", though, I guess that  
means I won't bother anymore with advocating a Java-like solution :/
