/* Namespace.js

   Version 1.0, June 2009
   by Mike Koss - released into the public domain.

   Support for building modular namespaces in javascript.
   
   Globals:
   
   window.global_namespace (Namespace) - The top of the namespace heirarchy.  Child namespaces
   are stored as properties in each namespace object.
   
   *** Class Namespace ***

   Methods:

   ns.Define(sPath, fnCallback(ns)) - Define a new Namespace object and call
   the provided function with the new namespace as a parameter.
   
   	sPath - Path of the form ('unique.module.sub_module').
   
   Returns the newly defined namespace.
   
   ns.Extend(oDest, oSource) - Copy the (own) properties of the source object
   into the destination object.  Returns oDest.  Note: This method is a convenience
   function - it has no effect on the Namespace object itself.
   
   ns.Import(sPath) - Return the namespace object with the given (absolute) path.
   
   Usage example:
   
   global_namespace.Define('startpad.base', function(ns) {
       var Other = ns.Import('startpad.other');

       ns.Extend(ns, {
           var1: value1,
           var2: value2,
           MyFunc: function(args)
               {
               ....Other.AFunction(args)...
               }
       });
       
       ns.ClassName = function(args)
       {
       };
       
       ns.ClassName.prototype = {
           constructor: ns.ClassName,
           var1: value1,
           
       Method1: function(args)
           {
           }
       };
   });
