I also would like to see the *Sharp namespace variants go away, I am not
sure what they are used for, but it would be easier to have everything
on the toplevel space.

About your other question: assemblies can contain code for an arbitrary
number of namespaces.  They are just deployment units (in fact, maybe we
should bundle a few of our existing assemblies together, like
gdk-sharp.dll and gtk-sharp.dll)
