[wp-hackers] Class conflicts with plugin frameworks

I'm in the beginning stages of writing a basic MVC plugin development
framework, and I'm realizing I'm going to have a naming conflict issue.
If I want to include this framework in several of the plugins and/or
themes I'm developing, eventually I'm going to run into an issue that
class_exists() isn't going to solve.
I could create the framework as a stand-alone plugin, but that would
require anyone who downloaded one of my plugins or themes to also
download the framework, which doesn't seem realistic (especially for
upgrades to existing plugins that don't have such a dependency currently).
Anyway, I figured many of you out there have probably run into these
same issues, and I wanted to see if anyone had developed a good strategy
to manage the problem.
