I would like to see it happen for conflict resolution at object 
instantiation only.

Circle is possibly a poor example. Consider other classes where the name 
has different meanings in different contexts, say "Customer" or 
"Product". Namespacing to me means that I can employ two (or more) 
libraries (or components) in a project at the same time and no ambiguity 
or conflict arises, viz

Dim RetailCust As New RetailLib:Customer
Dim TradeCust as New TradeLib:Customer

All the remainder of the code should only need to refer to the object 
name. In fact, once the object is instantiated it should be immutable! 
IOW changing the RetailCust object by re-instantiating it as a 
TradeLib:Customer needs to be prohibited in order to protect the code.

As for java style naming, YUCK!

Just my 20c worth
