+1  Yes, that makes sense.  I think it is what we (sometimes silently) did
anyway.  Some of our standards are self-made (for good reason), but there
are also a couple that were directly derived from example code snippets on
php.net's documentation pages.  In some cases, when there was no consistent
standard on php.net, we even asked them for the proper standard and to fix
their docs.

I'm not quite sure how they can ignore an architecture like Drupal.  I'm not
sure whether I know of a PHP framework/CMS that is NOT extensible and
doesn't support extensions to be placed in various locations, and therefore
wouldn't support this strict filepath based namespacing.

Thanks for staying involved, Crell!
