# -- provide compability layer with new namespace

This module checks the name under which it is imported and attempts to load
the corresponding module of the new portage namespace, inserting it into the
loaded modules list.
It also issues a warning to the caller to migrate to the new namespace.
Note that this module should never be used with it's true name, but only by
links pointing to it. Also it is limited to portage_foo ->
translations, however existing subpackages shouldn't use it anyway to maintain
compability with 3rd party modules (like elog or cache plugins), and they
shouldn't be directly imported by external consumers.
This module is based on an idea by Brian Harring.
