I'd be fine with "foo".Merb:to_url as one way of accessing the namespace,
but frankly, in most cases this is for libraries and frameworks to be able
to scope the extent of their changes to Ruby's core. In that context, being
able to say: "use this namespace for all of the following code" is quite
useful.

I&#39;d be fine with &quot;foo&quot;.Merb:to_url as one way of accessing the namespace, but frankly, in most cases this is for libraries and frameworks to be able to scope the extent of their changes to Ruby&#39;s core. In that context, being able to say: &quot;use this namespace for all of the following code&quot; is quite useful.<br>
