Seems like an interesting idea. Kinda like chroot, right?

Plan-9/inferno developed this idea but... well it's kinda difficult for me to get into plan-9. Seems I don't have that much interest in it.

What are your thoughts on per-process namespaces? How could this be useful, do you think?

Going a little further it might be fun to have some sort of universal resource searcher from which you can import resources into your name-space. Something like:

search> "foobar's telephone"
:: found 1:
:: 1) foobar's telephone (123)123-1234
search> attach 1 /dev/foobar_phone

your thoughts?

Define namespace, I'm not quite sure I know what you're talking about here.

name space in regards to files:

/bin/party
/usr/bin/party
/dev/pants
/etc/in_my

... and so on.

I little bit. more like giving a hostname/name to every file. Then every process has it's own set of bookmarks, if you will. These bookmarks (or namespace) get inherited by it's children.
