It'd be 'string.equals', the pricey one.  The work to keep track
of the appropriately interned strings would be too subtle to keep
right in most systems.  For starters, if I've got two subsystems
spitting out names, how can they coordinate to use the same pool
of interned names for each namespace??  Yeech.

I'd vote against this namespace-specific interning.
