Yes, there could be name conflicts, but this
would be discovered at compile time and is easily
corrected in the source file being edited.

The upside is that all the developers can CVS to/from
a single directory and compile with a very simple make procedure.

I agree that this scheme might become difficult
for a large number of developers.
