I just tried to use NAMESPACE to prevent name conflicts between packages and it appears that once a name is exported it will clash with the same name if it is exported from another package, in particular, if that other package does not use NAMESPACE.

Is there a way to "export" a name so that the current package user can see it, but other packages cannot see it? My working assumption is that this is not possible, so I use a prefix like the package name to keep function names "local."
