Actually, with your persistence :) i begin to see an advantage... if using the
same namespace for same interfaces and not implementations, you get better
portability... like with different virual machines... ok.
(The thing is, this is not what i rember from the early Java years where is
was stressed that one *must* place classes in a classpath reflecting your
organisation... I guess, this led to my confusion...)
