Namespace collisions FTW!

The "Marketplace" within the platform is what we all know and love (service
brokers expose stuff, CF admins make available to devs, devs consume).

What the email below is about is not a platform thing... it's an ecosystem
thing. Think training services, IaaS providers, and yes... including
commercial products / services with service broker APIs.

ecosystem. For those just getting started, or who want to expand their use
of the platform, it will be a comprehensive directory of available
solutions and services.

improvements. We are planning a big promo push for the marketplace starting
