Well, tossing my peanuts into the ring, as I recall, mysql++ used to have
"Mysql" appended to each class name.  This must have been done before
namespaces became available in the compiler.

Putting the entire mysql library into a namespace gives those that need it
the tools to segregate their code properly.  And a simple "using namespace mysql;"
or similar will make it just like before.

With namespaces, you can have the best of both worlds: clear naming, without
making convoluted class names mandatory.
