DI had planned to do this, but others in Squeakville have probably had more experience with name spaces and packages. The desire from Squeak Central is to do the simplest thing that provides the major benefits, and tie it in somehow with both the image segment loading facility and the new isolated projects capability.

[Dec 8 1999, Les Tyrrell] Much of the Oasis prototype is now operational in VisualWorks. This is still a pre-alpha system, but if it were written in Squeak I'd be at a point where I could start sharing code with interested parties. However, you might look at the Oasis wiki to see some of the issues I've encountered during the development of this system. This now gives us at least three and possibly four different attacks on the modularization issue for Squeak, with perhaps 5 or 10 people being fairly familiar with the real issues that come up in building these things. That's a good number, not quite 6 or 7 different approaches ( which I'd prefer ) but a good run at it.

In July we created a Swiki page about our work on this project and our ideas on the field of NameSpaces. If you are interrested in our code, please send us an e-mail.
