Why are all auto imports now prefixed with _root_ ?

This did not use to be the case some builds ago. I spend a bit of time removing these now. If its going to a lasting "feature" then it would be nice if the prefix was only needed if there is an ambiguity and also an option to disable.

Many in the Scala community consider it best practice to do this. But I think the rules are changing in 2.8 to make it less necessary.

The scala plugin has been 2.8 based for ages now, and it didn't used to do this. So my question is why was it added? Like you said, its not really needed in 2.8.

This should be fixed in latest nighlty builds.
