If ya want coffee then Sun Java has lots of pretty coffee mugs :P Sure enough, you could even use Java for real coffee machine. Of course it would need to be powered by a Quad processor SPARC server. Which I guess ain't too bad if you're a multi billion dollar corporation with shed loads of cash to throw away.

Returning back to namespaces, I agree with Marcus, I don't understand the point of the private class cack, it's much like the final keyword, it's totally evil and no one has any use for it in PHP anyway
