Interesting. First of all; I prommised to look at this but then
Stuff(tm) came on my path and I had to set priorities. I still mean

More topically; Robert's approach is sound and a interesting way of
dealing with namespace and scope, but it needs events that are static
members of public classes. Name-space-wise those should be the same as
UGens that are static members of public classes so in a strict way
this shouldn't change anything but the syntax for making and breaking
connections. (I think....)

Clearly it would get arround the matter of connections being
potentially unchucked as UGen references disapear so it might help in
practice but I'm not sure that this help is desirable and intended
