and will allow you to be more .. savage in shortening key/index names, because
you then have a namespace of sorts.  nb last night's "it is late" post example

In my experience, low for any given scene, but quite substantial in the

Also, it is recommended that all identifiers contain at least one
uppercase letter.  People have been burned by this before.
