Argh. Seems like aside from me, everybody is either in favor of a namespace, or doesn't care. You, Cyrille, Konstantin, Andre. I'm generally in favor of dictatorship, but every dictator has to listen to the people once in a while. So maybe, we'll revert to namespace Eigen:: instead of a prefix. But not tonight. Let's give this whole issue more time to ripen. Cheers, Benoit On Thursday 11 October 2007 20:48:44 Schleimer, Ben wrote: > > > Look at what Qt does.
