That may be true today, but the code was obviously designed to allow for
more than one namespace in the future.  I'm inclined to reject this part
of the patch, or at least rework it to const-ify the existing data
structure rather than editorialize on what's needed.

However, I believe this code was Alvaro's to begin with, so I'd be
interested in his opinion on how important it is for transformRelOptions
to allow more than one namespace per call.

Actually, I'm kind of wondering why the code has a concept of namespaces
at all, given the fact that it fails to store them in the resulting array.
It seems impossible to verify after the fact that an option was given with
the right namespace, so isn't the feature pretty much pointless?
