+I just attached a fix that solves the issue in the simplest way
+possible (short of removing the feature). It's a patch against the
+trunk, but I suspect it will apply cleanly against the 1.0 branch and
+even if it doesn't it's a pretty trivial fix.
+It would be nice to have something more fancy, for instance see if
+there is an assembly in the GAC with the same name as the namespace
+and if so recommend -r:, otherwise map namespace->package by a search
+of the pkg-config database and recommend -pkg:, but that would be
+rather complicated and wouldn't actually gain much, so I didn't even
+look seriously at implementing it.
