I added namespace support for BiF's with my work on NFS/RPC(*) and this 
one is the only new BiF I wrote. The idea is that in the long run we 
should migrate BiF's to appropriate namespaces.


(*) That's when I also added support for making types, globals, enums, 
etc. easily accessible in C++, BiF, and script land
