As an off-the-cuff suggestion, you could start renaming things
fb_core_... instead of fb_..., and make it very clear to folks that
fb_core is being adopted as the namespace for the module.  That way
the only way you'll step on someone is if they create an fb_core
module, which would be foolhardy if they already know about the fb
module and how it works.
