The UI changes are indeed a separate problem; if anything, this will make them more likely to happen as more people will run into the need for more space in the class and method columns at the expense of the others.

Agreed that it looks like a smooth way to add the functionality.

On the completely pragmatic level, it will make more obvious the fact that our browser selection panes are not individually sizable.   I find them narrow at times now, and adding another column will squeeze even more.  Maybe I find them narrow specifically because I use long class names that would not be necessary if we had namespaces :)

Yep. Fixing UI could be seen as a separate problem.
But since traditionally, smalltalk seen as a language AND environment,
so in order to use it, we should do the both,
otherwise nobody will use it.

P.S. i like the design of Environments. Its not intrusive (no syntax
changes), and coexists peacefully with existing code.
