IMO, 3rd party libraries should always be in their own package
namespace. Leave the top-level for user code! Why should a local module
'util' conflict with any dependency?  It should be the library author's
job to make sure his code doesn't conflict with the user's!


Recently, our IT department hired a bug-fix engineer. He used to work for Volkswagen.
