Just curious: Why do we even need a non-namespaced selector? Can't we just implement a particular namespace, e.g. "std" and make it binary compatible to un-namespaced selectors behind the scenes? That would make the explanation in the docs much easier: Every selector has a namespace. Apple's stuff lives in the "std" namespace. Even retroactively. Done. So the runtime internally special-cases "std" to be the same as non-namespaced? NSSelectorFromString() would just do the right thing if given a string without dots in it.
