Namespace guidelines

It looks like the namespace of the Animation library does not follow the .NET guidelines. The root namespace is "Animation". This does not reflect the "company" or "creator" of the library and can commonly create conflicts with other libraries which include these .dlls. In my case, I have a Graphics namespace which will reference objects in this library; but I also have an Animation namespace in the graphics. Because of this naming conflict I cannot access the library.

I realize that this will break code, but it's probably something that should be done sooner than later to meet the guidelines MS has set for .NET frameworks and to resolve any future conflicts.

This has been fixed in the latest source (and in build 1.0.0.51)

Thanks for the quick response - I think I only have 1.0.0.5.

Whoops, I'm afraid I didn't properly read your post. 1.0.0.51 doesn't conform to these guidelines but the next release will - thanks for bringing this up.
