Then you have to get everyone using that package to agree not to 
create naming conflicts. E.g., if I decide to publish ``, 
nobody else is allowed to publish their own ``.

But if you are capable of doing that, then you don't need the 
package at all: you can just get everybody to agree to avoid 
naming conflicts at the top level.

The reason prefixes like `geod24` are necessary in the first 
place is because we *cannot* get the entire community to 
coordinate in the way that you're proposing.
