\ as a namespace separator? PHP on crack… October 26, 2008

Maybe MS Windows users are comfortable with ‘\’ (without the quotes) as a separator, but wtf? For me and probably on most programming languages and shells out there, ‘\’ is simply the escape character.

Confusing, hard to type on non-qwerty keyboards and ugly as hell. Not really the right properties for new syntax. Ninh has a interesting post about it.

I bet the decision will be regretted. I can not imagine a choice worse than this.
