I agree. It's just that a user might feel safe not to trash the
global context because he's inside an object, but this is not
true. If we really want to avoid name clashes then we have to do
that (thin) extra layer; otherwise, we're leaving all up to the
user, just exactly as it is now --- which is not necessarily bad,
but which was not our objective, was it?
