The new package name mysql::cluster::ndbapi is a bit of a hassle for
writing perl, since there's no way to import the names from the package
into your own namespace - rather you need to always fully qualify them.
So C++'s NdbOperation::LM_Exclusive becomes the rather unwieldy
(Especially since referring to non-existent variables in another package
isn't caught by 'use strict' so that if you mistype that you just
silently get 0)
I would propose just putting the package in 'ndbapi' (and 'mgmapi') for
perl. For languages that have more namespace facilities (like Python)
the long name is fine.
