[theme-reviewers] Drop-in code library and public namespace

The main issue with renamespacing these sorts of libraries is that a
lot of developers are pulling them directly from GitHub or SVN into
their code. It would be a real pain to renamespace every time you pull
the latest version.

Another common one I've seen is themes dropping in TGM Plugin
Activation. Although TGM PA handles itself well by wrapping it's
classes in if(!class_exists(' .. ')) to prevent conflicts.
